Majnu ka Tilla is situated on the right bank of the River Yamuna on the G. T. Road (National Highway-1), opposite Timarpur, Delhi. On Baisakhi Day, the birthday of Khalsa is celebrated here immensely. It is said that a muslim hermit had camped here on a small hill at the edge of the Yamuna during the rule of Sultan Sikander Shah Lodhi. He become very thin by fasting, because he was always lost in meditatation. He even forgets about the world around, so people started relating him to Majnu (crazy). Whenever he was not lost in meditation, he ferry people across the Yamuna in his small boat for free.
The Tibetan camp, within walking distance of Delhi University, is a unique Tibetan refugee creation. It is completely self-sustaining. It came into existence through hard work and an obstinate refusal to be daunted and overwhelmed by the grinding poverty within the camp and in the surrounding areas.
Dharamsala is considered the heart of the Tibet world. But it is Majnu Ka Tilla that constitutes the commercial centre of the exile community. It is the hub of Tibetan commerce and spreads its limited prosperity along its many spokes to other .
