Majnu-ka-tilla, the Tibetan colony, is really worth a visit when in Delhi.

a visit to Majnu-ka-tilla is, in my eyes, among the top ten of things to do in Delhi

I really recommend it

the colony was established in 1960 and is officially called New Aruna Nagar Colony, or Samyeling (Little tibet), and is home to second generation of Tibetan refugees


the temple is in the middle of the village square


praying wheels everywhere


herbs and other interesting things for sale instead of traditional medicin


every time I visit I buy some yak blankets from the local market so for no other reason than that it’s worth a visit.
