Tibetan Buddhist Temple, Dehradun

Visit one of the largest Buddhist institutions in India at Tibetan Buddhist Temple. Built in 1676, the monastery represents one of six major centers of the Nyingma School. Befittingly, it houses the country's tallest Buddha statue, which measures 32.6 m (107 ft) tall, as well as the world's tallest stupa (tower), standing 56 m (185 ft) high. Naturally, these tend to draw the bulk of tourists to the complex. The monastery has acted as a school for much of its existence, training scholars and yogis from all over Tibet for over 300 years.

  • Tranquil, large, peaceful, and beautiful. A large tower featuring shrines and several art pieces in the grounds.  more »

Where to stay in Dehradun

The hill station of Dehradun has a welcome number of accommodations, allowing it to fulfill its role as something of a gatekeeper for wider explorations of the region. The bulk of accommodations center around Rajpur Road, with an abundance of standard hotels, guesthouses, and budget hostels to choose from. Look to the extremes of the urban area, in any direction, to find the more upmarket options in town, with a couple of resorts featuring pools, spas, and restaurants, and a number of rental cottages and villas.
