Mcleodganj in the North Indian state of Himachal Pradesh is also known as “Little Lhasa” because of it being home to a large population of Tibetans.

The Dalai Lama temple complex is one of the most famous attractions for Tibetans residing all over India. The temple is surrounded by a number of monasteries and Buddhist temples.

However, there are just a handful of travellers who take an initiative to take the side road and trace the holy trek that is popularly known as Kora. Casually called as the smaller version of the Lingkhor, the sacred circumambulation path in Lhasa, the Kora circuit runs along the Dalai Lama Temple Complex of Mcleodganj.

All along the circuit, there are multi colored flags and stones painted beautifully with holy Buddhist Mantras. Different sizes of prayer wheels are installed at every interval. It is believed that the one, who turns these wheels, successfully mitigates from the worldly negativity and bad karma.
