The golden monastery is beautiful with vivid colours, the humongous space, well laid out gardens, greenery and the imposing, absolutely beautiful statues. But that is where it all ends. The bathrooms are AWFUL. The temple officials do not understand English and when asked to explain the idols, some of them were not too keen to do that. Inside the last... More

A Calm, peaceful and quiet place. Ideal for people who love to meditate and like calm places. One gets to experience the culture & tradition of Tibet.

We just loved being here and enjoying the calm and peaceful environment. Gives an experience of Tibet and you experience their culture and interact with monks. The monks are friendly and go the extra mile to help you. A must stop on your journey from Mysore to Coorg. After the visit we had coffee and momos at the restaurant nearby.

The monastery is beautiful, with great statues of the Buddha and wall paintings. The statues and paintings are also well explained. I found the crowd disappointing though. Everyone was loud and taking pictures. While taking pictures was not forbidden, the lack of silence in the monastery really spoils the visit. The area around the monastery is billed as the largest...

Fantastic architecture and artwork. Extensive attention to detail in each and every painting that adorns all the walls of the main monastery and others around it. Very clean premises. The main monastery has awesome statues and absolutely beautiful carvings and art. Tends to get overcrowded on weekends.

I v travelled far and wide in India . Such Monastries are seen only in the Himalayas . Especially in Sikkim . The Golden Monastery is worth a visit . The statues of Buddha , Sambhava are 60 ft . tall each in sitting position. Statues are golden and the monastery itself has golden tappered roof .

This monastery is definitely worth visiting, both from an architectural point of view and a religious place. Very peaceful in and around the monastery.
