Nestled amidst the hustle bustle and cultural hub of Happy Valley is the Shedup Choepelling Temple. The huge idol of Buddha on top of the edifice livens up the place and gives a unique charm to the tiny Buddhist temple. Located at a distance of around 2.5 kms from the Company Garden and very close to the IAS Academy on the highest cliff of the valley, Shedup Choepelling Temple is adorned with murals, prayer wheels and meditation chambers. Situated in between the snow-capped mountains, the divine aura and vibe of this place echo with solace, calm and peace.
Colloquially known as Tibetan Buddhist Temple, Shedup Choepelling Temple is an astounding example of Tibetan architecture. It is also the first Tibetan shrine to be built in India and was consecrated by Dalai Lama. It is believed that in 1959 Dalai Lama fled the Chinese authorities and sought refuge here in Mussoorie at Happy Valley. The place he stayed at, was later developed into a Buddhist Temple by the Tibetan community of Mussoorie.
