You get to see Tibet ,without going Tibet.If you are going Coorg,make sure you visit the monastery and golden temple.It's a pleasant experience.The interiors of golden temple is really beautiful and the serene atmosphere relaxes ur mind.

We visited the Golden Temple at Bylakuppe on our recent trip to Southern India. We were lucky enough to see the monks chanting with gongs, horns etc. which was a truly spiritual experience. Video cameras are not allowed inside the monastery.

This is a must visit place if you are near Kushalnagar. The temple takes you to a different world altogether. The temple is well maintained. But one can only wish for a better civilized people to visit the place as most of them fail to keep the silence in the temple.Drive through the different camps and you will feel refreshed... More

This is one of the most beautiful monasteries I have seen after the one at Dharamshala. Clean and peaceful, you can spend hours sitting inside without anyone coming to disturb you. Something we miss in most of the temples, which are always a rushed visit. A must vist when in Mysore.

travelled from mysore to kushalnagar. worth seeing. but a little too crowded with tourists, most of whom tend to forget that it is a place for prayer and solitude.
