Dharamsala: Jan 25, 2013

England batsman Kevin Pietersen visited the Dalai Lama’s residence at Dharamsala on Friday but did not get to meet the Tibetan spiritual leader.

“His Holiness himself… Such an interesting morning visiting his residence!” tweeted Pietersen, attaching a photograph of him besides a framed photo of the Tibetan spiritual leader.

He also posted a photograph of the Dharamsala airport.

India and England play the first ever One-Day International at Dharamsala on Sunday at the HPCA Stadium, 1,500 metres above sea level at the foothills of the Himalayas.

The Dalai Lama moved to this hill town shortly after fleeing his homeland in 1959.
