A magnificent building stands near Chowgan Chowk in nondescript Tibetan Colony in Bir, Kangra. I have tried to capture highlights of the building that showcases many traditional Tibetan architectural features. Check the mini photo gallery.
Behind the black door lies a beautiful residential complex with cemented and open green spaces around soft orange and white color buildings embellished with several Tibetan signs, symbols, and arts.

The shrine is surrounded by sculptures on three sides. (L to R) A dhol (double-headed drum) player. A manjira (cymbal) player. A flute player.

The pond separates the residential area and the shrine.
