Going by the level of maintenance and landscaping done, I'd put in a guess of this being a palace converted to a heritage hotel - the Taj Lake Palace Hotel??

EDIT: Oops, Dutt saab beat me to it.

That is St John's Church in Dharamshala.
Oldest Anglican Cathedral in India.Built in 1852.I think founders of Dharamsala David McLeod and Lord Elgin Viceroy of India are buried here or something like that...

I am sure on your trip to Ladakh most of you would have seen wind mills. But I saw windmills with small fan blades only at one place. Can you take a guess which is this place?

Is it Mandu?
Could be Orchha, although distance should be much more.
