Rewalsar- An Important Buddhist Centre

A Monastry at Rewalsar

Rewalsar is a very small town near Mandi is Himachal Pradesh but still has three Buddhist Monasteries. One can see lot of very young Buddhist students/scholars who stay in the hostels run by these monasteries here in Rewalsar. After Mcleodganj this probably is the second most important Buddhist centre in Himachal.

When I had gone there I could see very few 'Indian' tourist. Most of the tourist were either Tibetan Buddhist or foreigners from America and Europe.

The colours used for painting the monasteries are always bright and cheerful as is evident from the two monasteries above.
