The Monastery is brilliant but on weekends there is just too much crowd who are both unruly and seem to have a lower mental function. It is clearly written not to make noise and behave properly but people take the place for granted. Its a beautiful place to really feel calm and peace.

To view and experience the bliss of Buddha consciousness in our own backyard, this is a must visit place.

A huge monastery with highest Tibetan settlement in south India around. Good to spend time in prayers hall. If you fancy Tibetan food there are authentic places in the town which serves home food.

A 60-ft golden statue of the Buddha, to be precise, flanked by two equally impressive figures. The trio is housed in the Golden Temple, located in the heart of India's second largest Tibetan settlement after Dharamsala. We chose to spend a weekend in Coorg because it promised wild elephants, monsoon soaked views of lush hills and valleys, and a home... More
