Located off Mysore - Coorg highway, Namdroling monastery at Bulakuppe ( or golden temple as it is called) is a world in its own. Apart from the main monastery complex, there are many smaller monasteries and living quarters located around the the area. Do visit the place if you are driving down to Coorg from Mysore.

Its little Tibet in Mysore .Architecture is marvel and the statues and the color of the place is just amazing ! Hymns are absolute divine. The inner chamber with Golden statues of Gautama Buddha, Padmasambhava and Amitāyus is a serene.

A must see when you visit Madikeri. This is located at Kushalnagar, on the Mysore-Madikeri route. One can either stop by enroute to Madikeri or visit this place from Madikeri. Very good road from Madikeri to Kushalnagar, will take an hours leisurely drive. Very well maintained and blissful place. Has three large idols (Guru Padmasambhava a.k.a Guru Rinpoche, Buddha Shakhyamuni... More

This monastery is a little world of its own which will leave you enchanted. However at the time of our visit the place was crowded with tourists and most seemed to forget that this was a temple.

During a Coorg (Madikeri) trip, we visited Monastery which is located near to Kushalnagar town, this is also called as Golden Temple. This is located about 90kms away from Mysore at the foothills towards Coorg. The architecture is typically Buddhist and the green trees/hills give a feeling of peace and serenity. The main temple is clearly the highlight of Bylakuppe... More

It is a beautiful monastery in Bylakuppe. We visited this on the way to Coorg from Mysore. Luckily we reached when the monks were praying. It was a very good experience. Though it is a beautiful majestic monastery, I found it less tourist friendly. The halls were closed for the tourists and we could not get inside the main temple.... More
