Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, Dharamshala Overview

The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is a Tibetan library in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, founded by Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. With artefacts and manuscripts that date back to the 12th century, it is one of the pioneering institutions in the study and research of Buddhism. With an air of peace and serenity descending upon people who visit this offbeat museum, dissemination of Tibetan knowledge has been made possible.

It is home to as many as 80,000 manuscripts and 600 Buddhist artefacts including the beautifully crafted silk applique thangkas and a three dimensional, wood carved mandala of the Avalokiteshwara - one of the most revered and compassionate Bodhisattvas in Buddhism.
