Lonely Planet review
Inside the government compound at Gangchen Kyishong, the Library of Tibetan Works & Archives preserves Tibetan texts spared from the Cultural Revolution. Many have since been translated into English and other European languages. Regular visitors can become temporary members(₹50 per month; passport needed for ID) to access the foreign-language collection.
Upstairs is a fascinating cultural museum with statues, old Tibetan artefacts and books and some astonishing three-dimensional mandalas in wood and sand. Also worth a visit is the Nechung Gompa just below, home to the Tibetan state oracle.
It's a stiff walk back up to McLeod centre, or take a taxi for ₹100.
