This week, we’re back at one of our very first 1 minute holidays: the beautiful temple at the Norbulingka Institute in Dharamsala. The institute was set up to keep the Tibetan arts alive while so many people are living in exile. Artists do long apprenticeships here and the results can be seen in this gorgeous temple.

Come and stand for a moment inside the cool of the temple on a beautiful sunny day. See the sun glinting off the sculpture of the Buddha and the gold in the wall decorations. You can hear the cicadas outside, but here it’s a moment of peace.


This is part of the 1 minute holiday series – a new one every Friday.

Take another 1 minute holiday here:
