Gyuto Monastery, Dharamshala

Gyuto Monastery, situated at a distance of 6 km from Dharamshala, is a popular tourist destination. This shrine is home to the Karmapa, the head of the Karma Kagyu, a major school of Tibetan Buddhism. Also known as TCV School, the monastery houses the idol of the Sakyamuni Buddha, known as Gautama Buddha, which is enshrined in a small chamber.

The monastery was built in memory of the Tibetan soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the freedom of Tibet. A structure resembling a stupa, similar to those built by King Asoka during the 3rd century, is also present there. The Gyuto Monastery is well connected with buses and taxis from the main town.
