Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, will
visit forward areas in Ladakh in Jammu and
Kashmir bordering China this week to attend
religious functions, an aide said here Monday.

'His Holiness the Dalai Lama is reaching the
Nubra Valley in Kargil for a week from July 21
where he will bless his followers and attend
religious functions at different monasteries,'
Tenzin Taklha, joint secretary at the Dalai Lama's office, told IANS.

He said the Dalai Lama would also inaugurate a
newly-built Buddha statute. Kargil is a Buddhist-dominated area.

This would the Nobel laureate's second visit to the state in less than a month.

Last month, he visited Gulabgarh, a Buddhist-dominated town.

The Dalai Lama has lived in India since 1959
heading a government-in-exile based in
Dharamsala. India is also home to some 100,000
Tibetan exiles. The Tibetan government-in-exile
is not recognised by any country in the world.
