It is also called Namgyal Dratsang in local language. The monastery was established so that Namgyal monks could assist the Dalai Lamas in public religious affairs, perform ritual prayer ceremonies for the welfare of Tibet and function as a center of learning and meditation on the profound Buddhist treatises. After the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959, when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was granted asylum in India, the monastery was re-established here to preserve and continue the Tibetan culture and traditions. The monks here go through a rigorous and streamlined course of training, which includes a study of philosophy, sacred arts, meditation and debates. Even those who are not particularly inclined towards religion will be fascinated by the serene ambience all around the campus and the imposing figures of Buddha.

It houses the popular Namgyal monastery, a museum, a café, a book shop, a library and the special residence of the Dalai Lama. Located just about 1 kilometer out of the center of McLeodganj, down the Temple Road, apart from being a place of worship, the temple is also where the Dalai Lama holds his public and private audiences and his public teachings. Thousands of pilgrims come here every year seeking the blessings of the Tibetan leader. Several religious festivities and dances are organised here through the year.

Named after a 7th century temple in Lhasa, Tibet, Tsuglag Khang is an extremely peaceful place reverberating of Buddhist culture.

Hanuman-ka-Tibba is the highest point in the Dhauladhar mountain range. Also known as the 'White Mountain' this is at an altitude of about 5,639 metres (18,500 feet) above the sea level and offers breathtaking views of the valley.
