This monastery was built by exiled Tibetan monks who fled to India when China annexed Tibet. The complex has a number of amazing temples and nice gardens. It makes a change to other temples and mosques in India as it is entirely Buddhist.

This place is absolutely beautiful and a must visit when in this region. The atmosphere is peaceful unlike most hindu temples. The statues of the buddha are absolutely stunning. Take some time and try to talk with some of the young monks to learn a bit about buddhism.

A large learning centre in Buddhism, the monastry is very beautiful. When we reached there the young monks had just finished there afternoon lessons and outside their classrooms you can witness them leading a pretty normal life drinking tea, watching television at the roadside shops, playing with their smartphones!! The architecture is pretty and so are the wall paintings that... More

Though a little out of the way and difficult to get to . It is well worth the drive. Very peaceful place however many other visitors keep howling and making too much noise which ruin the experience. Try to go early morning. Entry is free. But there are no food or refreshments inside and the toilets are situated in one... More

I'm quite a monastery fan. Vibrant colours, bustling young monks, yet so calming. This is actually in Coorg though. Visit it when visiting south Coorg. One of the biggest Buddhist settlements in South India and self sufficient too. Souvenir and trinkets shopping can also be done

Amazing to find a Tibetan community living in India. Well worth a visit although it is a little difficult to get to.

This is a beautiful and large temple complex that is very similar in feel to the Mindroling Monastery in Dehradun. The nearby village isn't up to much, and it's not easy to find good food, so stick to the tried and true. Certainly worth the visit for those who appreciate Tibetan Buddhism or want to discover it.
