Hotel Chonor House McLeodganj Dharamshala
Chonor House, a branch of Norbulingka, is the best place to stay in Mcleod Ganj, conveniently located near the Thekchen Chöling Temple adjacent to HH the Dalai Lama’s residence. Each of our eleven well-appointed rooms is beautifully decorated according to a unique Tibetan theme. Set amidst tall cedars, Chonor House is peacefully removed from the hustle and bustle of the town.
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. Excavation of the site, which began in November 1988, was a revelation. We uncovered the foundations of a large house and objects which had belonged to its occupants. The late Mr Nowrojee, one of Mcleod Ganj’s oldest residents, told us that a courthouse had stood on the Chonor House site.
The building and interior decoration, which involved the work of three different groups of Tibetan painters, and because we wanted all the work to be of the highest quality and integrity we were prepared to be patient in achieving it. Chonor House opened in March 1993.
Each of the eleven well-appointed rooms at Chonor House has 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.
