Tsug­lagkhang Com­plex

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

This is re­port­edly the big­gest Ti­betan monastery out­side Ti­bet. Close to McLeod Square — the main mar­ket area, tourists can at­tend ser­mons by the Dalai Lama here. His res­i­dence is also on the premises of this mag­nif­i­cent tem­ple. With the sounds of holy chants fill­ing the air, the spa­cious med­i­ta­tion hall res­onates with seren­ity. How­ever, you can’t use your cell phone here or talk loudly. So, keep your deci­bel lev­els in check. At the en­trance, one will also spot pil­lars ded­i­cated to the Ti­betan mar­tyrs. The Ti­betan Mu­seum, also lo­cated here, may not be ex­tra­or­di­nary, but has a mas­sive col­lec­tion of pho­to­graphs doc­u­ment­ing Ti­betan history, her­itage and cul­ture. The en­try fee is `5.
