Dharamsala (or more accurately the tiny village of McLeod Ganj) which is perched on a ridge 10 kilometres above Dharamsala, is the headquarters of the Tibetan Government in Exile and home to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. McLeod Ganj, named after the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab David Mcleod, was established in the mid-1850s as a British garrison. The British developed the settlement as an important administrative centre for the Kangra region, but following a major earthquake in 1905 moved the centre to the busy bazaar town of Lower Dharamsala.
