The Dalai Lama Complex
The structure on Temple Road is just a short walk from the main square of McLeod Ganj.
The temple complex is open daily from sunrise to sunset and visitors are welcome to explore the peaceful ambiance of the surroundings. The actor says, “It was a very pleasant experience. I enjoyed having momos in the cold climate.”

Pushkar has the only temple in India that is dedicated to Lord Brahma. “It is believed to be the centre of creation as Brahma is the lord of creation. Hence the importance of Pushkar,” adds Ashmit.
