Winter Capital of Himachal Pradesh
Dharamshala, a place located in Himachal Pradesh, is not less than a piece of heaven on the earth. With its calm weather and picturesque scenery, it has won the heart of every tourist, who visited there. From ages, this place is popular for its combination of natural beauty and the
culture of Tibetan.
Dharamshala is also popular as the home of the Dalai Lama, who was rehabilitated in this part of India, with his family and few other Tibetan. It happened in the year 1959, when the Dalai Lama escaped from Tibet due to the occurrence of some hostile situation there, on 17 th March 1959. He reached Indian Border with his group of Tibetans on 31 st March 1959 and asked for the shelter from the then Prime Minister. Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru gives him rehabilitation in India. As there is not much difference between the culture and tradition of Dharamshala and Tibet, Dalai Lama got settled down in Dharamshala with his family and other Tibetan group. He excelled in maintaining the sublime atmosphere, on the basis of equality and mutual trust. He even took the charge regarding the Tibetan culture and community and the people, and discussed the issues they were facing with the Indian Government and then formed his own ‘Government in exile’ in Dharamshala, for the growth of Tibetan people.
