Living in Himalayan McLeod Ganj
Wisdom Quarterly wiki edit
McLeod Ganj is a suburb of Dharamsala -- home of the Dalai Lama, retired leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile -- in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh state, India.
It is known as "Little Lhasa," the capital of Tibet surrounding the magnificent castle, palace, Vatican-like treasure storehouse of Potala. It is also called "Dhasa" (a short form of Dharamsala used mainly by Tibetans) because of its large population of Tibetans. The Tibetan government-in-exile is headquartered in McLeod Ganj.
It is at an average elevation of 6,831 feet (2,082 meters). It is situated on the Dhauladhar Range, with the highest peak, "Hanuman Ka Tibba," at about 18,500 feet (5,639 meters), standing just behind it.
McLeod Ganj was named after Sir Donald Friell McLeod, a Lieutenant Governor of Punjab. The suffix ganj is a common Urdu language word for "neighborhood." More
