A notable institution of the Gelug Order, Gyuto Monastery serves as the center of learning for Tantric rituals, Tantric meditation, and Buddhist philosophy. Founded in 1474 by Jetsun Kunga Dhondup, a disciple of the first Dalai Lama, the monastery complex provides a home for over 500 practicing monks maintaining Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The buildings glow bold yellow, and stand in marvelous contrast to the backdrop of snow-capped mountains. Plan my trip to Dharamsala with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
