It has a 60foot Buddha statue which worth a visit. The statue is magnificent and the building which houses it looks deceiving from the outside One can't believe that such a huge statue would be in there

I visited this place enroute to coorg. It takes an hour to see the place. The monastery is huge and the prayers and rituals of buddhists monks is a must see. You can come here to relax and enjoy the stillness.

This is a must visit when in Coorg, as this is the second largest monastery in India. You will see unique art and paintings, along with a lot of monks going about their business

Beautiful is the word, that strikes one's mind when in the monastery! Multiple buildings with artistic intricate works that would leave one baffled. Colourful as well.

Its a beautiful monastery. Once you enter, you feel transported to some corner in North East or Ladakh. There are 3 huge statues of Budha along with 2 others.
