The Tibetan Public School was established in 1978 as a primary school for the Tibetan Muslims at Id-gah, Srinagar with 25 students and two teachers. Later on, the school shifted to Hawal in Srinagar and currently accommodates 550 students and 35 teachers with classes up to 10th standard.
Former education minister Kalon Thupten Lungrig of the Central Tibetan Administration, inaugurated the new school building in 2004.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama will also visit the resident Tibetan Muslim locality and will have an audience with older generations of the community during his stay.
His Holiness will be leaving Srinagar on 18 July for Leh and Laddakh, to impart a series of teachings and talks.
