Norbulingka Institute- The Doll Museum

Norbulingka Institute- The Doll Museum

Norbulingka Institute is located approximately 25 km from Mcloedganj and easily reached by road. This place concentrates on the traditional arts of crafts of Tibet.Outside West Bengal We visited many museum but it’s different type of museum-the doll museum.


Beautiful and work of art :-
This is one of the best collection of Tibetian lifestyle.The architecture of the whole premises is fantastic. It’s more like a complex which has a museum, temple, offices, shops & some workshops where the locals make all the stuff like wood paintings, clothes etc. The temple was just like any other monastery. You will have access to visit all classroom where you can see different artistic work. The Museum structure is very nice.full of trees and small channels of water in premises.



The main interesting part of the institute is the Doll museum, arts and craft center where you can see the workers making the artefacts in front of you. The articles are then sold in the shop but at exorbitant prices. Tibetian gongs, lamp shades, wall hangings and paintings can be bought.




This is Dalaim lama’s personal Monastry, located outskirt of Dharamshala with beautiful Architecture & complete tranquility. IT charges you 20 Rs fee for entry (which should be ok).
