The place is run (if not owned) by the Tibetans. But it doesn't seem to be a bad thing. They are genuinely nice people. The temple itself is maintained extremely well. The main shrine where the 3 gigantic statues of Buddhas are kept is simply amazing. The colours around the statues and peace and quiet are well worth the visit.

Peaceful place, for obvious reasons.. its a Tibetan settlement, with a monastery & some small businesses around. Spend an hour inside, unless the tourists are loud, the place is very very silent/peaceful. you will see the Buddhist monks around, praying.. walking around.. its their place.. respect that..

I went to almost all the major sight seeing areas in Coorg and this was the most interesting of all.. The large temple hall where you will find Buddhist idols with numerous wall paintings is fascinating.. The sight of Buddhist monks in prayer in main hall reminded me of a scene in Kung fu movies.. Well maintained well protected area... More

This is a fabulous Tibetan settlement. The place is amazingly clean and inspiring. The serene environment, the chanting of the Buddhist hymns at prayers, the fragrance of the incense will all leave you with a memorable visit that you will cherish for a long time.

The colorful architecture was what struck me most here. Beautifully landscaped all around, the entrance was inviting. The murals outside and on the inner sanctum were so beautiful.. most of them being similar to the Hindu mythology depictions The sanctum was huge and invited one to just sit and meditate upon oneself. The huge golden idols had a story each... More

One of the best attraction around Coorg. we saw hundreds of monk sitting in a large temple hall and chanting some mantras and playing a large drum sort of thing was mesmerising. Must visit.

A really lovely monastery to visit. As a Buddhist it felt like home. The statues inside are stunning and even though it was a Sunday with lots of visitors, it was still relatively peaceful. Well worth visiting - as is Sera Je/Sera May Monastery which is 4 kms away ( over 3000 monks are at Sera Je)

An amazing place and a must see when you are in Madikeri. This Monastery has some beautiful buildings with rich colors. Those who want to explore their inner self - this is the place to be. Prayer halls are indeed serene and you feel God when you are in.
