Post visits to so many Monasteries in India, this one really impresses. The magnitude of the halls is excellent. Takes your breath away. Golden Monastery as many say, its certainly the most impressive points to visit in this region. It has an attached University also.

A very peaceful place....I visited this place during afternoon when their prayers were going on. So the entire ambiance was very soothing and a different experience all together

Truly said ..its mini Tibet in Karnataka . The afternoon prayer by monks is a good experience and a one day trip to kushalnagara/ bylakuppe is sufficient as there isnt much else around

This Monsatery is in Coorg and is known by different names e.g. Gloden Temple, Bylakuppe, as well. Overall very calm and soothing place.

It's one of the customary sightseeing to do when in coorg. The Monastery is huge, clean and quite. Good to pay visit once.

this is one of the best monastries to visit in this part of the country. also called the golden temple of kushalnagar. it has the replica of palyul monastery too. if you stay long enough, you get to see some of the daily rituals & prayers too. try the canteen too for some good tibetan food.

This is probably the 9th time I am visiting this monastery, each and every time I had been there, I come out of it with relaxed mind... such is the effect of this place. Thank you Tibetians!

This is the second largest buddhist settlement in India. The Golden temple and the statues inside are a real beauty. Its on the way from Mysore to Coorg.

Been @ Dharamshala & Bylakuppe in the last 2 years, for an outsider (which we are mostly) this place stands out 100 times better. Grandeur of this place makes it a repeat visit place....
