Located in Kushalnagar, Golden Temple is definitely a sightseeing option while visiting Coorg. It was my first visit to any Buddhist monastery and surprised to find one in Karnataka. One can find several monks and nuns there and end up making the place a town away from market area. There is no charge to visit the place. It is clean,... More

The Monastery was a beautiful settlement in Coorg. It was surprising to find a Tibetan Monastery so far down south. The Monastery itself is spread over a vast area enclosing classrooms, living quarters, temple etc. The entire place is clean and has a very peaceful environment. The temple is also a must visit. There is also a little souvenir shop... More

It is the largest teaching center of Nyingmapa – a lineage of Tibetan Buddhism – in the world. It is built by Tibetan exiles who were given shelter in India during 1959- later 1960's. It has a college, hospital, and temples. Latest temple being Golden Temple. It is nice and beautiful. Once you enter the area you will see majority... More

This is a big temple, not necessarily evident unless you get there. We were driving and liked that there was a proper fee-based parking. The temple is beautiful, lots of gold ! We did not check out the tibetan restaurants but apparently you get very good momo. There is a small canteen inside the complex, where we had a quick... More

While driving on the way to Coorg you see beautiful scenery , farmscapes and small village. Suddenly you turn to the left and coffee plantation starts. Greenery increases and every where on tall trees flags competes the wind. There you know you are close to the beautiful monastery. Even though it is man made and intricately carved it casts a...

Well worth the bus ride! (we came from Mysore, 2 1/2 hours each way) The Golden Temple is stunning. The grounds are well maintained. They ask you to keep the silence which makes the area more beautiful. The peace gives you space to breathe and meditate. The other temples around the complex are interesting to see as well.

This place has one of the largest Tibetan settlements. The monastery has many temples with buddha statues all over. The place is very beautiful with lot of trees and flowering plants. The temples are very neatly maintained. One can try tibetan curries and foods here.

We stopped by at the Namdroling Monastery on our way to Coorg from Bangalore and it was well worth the time. It is a beautiful and majestic monastery with huge gilded statues of Buddha and wall paintings. The lawns are very well laid out and full of flowers. Beautiful
