Although the complex isn't a particularly interesting building in itself, it would be amiss to come to McLeod Ganj and not pay a visit. For me, the most compelling aspect of being there was an opportunity to witness the monks having a lively debate in the courtyard. I spent an hour or so, transfixed by the raised voices and animated gestures. The monks usually work in pairs, with one standing and one sitting. The standing monk says his piece and then claps his hands, a sign for the seated monk to respond. It looks a little fierce, but is all done in good humor. The temple is on the second floor, where a gold-plated Buddha sits as barefooted pilgrims file past, paying their respects. On the way out, there is an ornate room with a large prayer wheel inside.
