Conveniently located near the Thekchen Chöling Temple adjacent to HH the Dalai Lama’s residence, Chonor House, a small Tibetan boutique hotel owned by the Norbulingka Institute, provides a small and friendly base with a good location for exploring Mcleaod Ganj and Dharamsala.
Chonor House was designed and built by British architect David Porter in a style intended to blend with the natural environment of the hills overlooking the Kangra valley. It was built for the purpose of preserving and promoting Tibetan culture in Dharamshala. There are 11 tastefully designed rooms which have been uniquely decorated according to a different Tibetan theme, with murals featuring regions such as Kham, Amdo and Central Tibet and the flora and fauna of the Land of Snow. The striking wall paintings created by Norbulingka artists are complemented by appliquéd fabrics, hand-knotted carpets and carved and decorated wooden furniture. All rooms have their own balcony or terrace, overlooking the garden or surrounding hills, and a good sized and well-equipped bathroom.
