This place left a deep impression in our hearts. We never knew the Buddhists has an entirely different education system and that too a pretty tough one. It has more to do with patience and soulful living. Thanks to one of the students who took his precious time to help us understand more about them. It was a nice feeling... More

This Tibetan Monastery is a huge one and gives a fair enough idea of the lifestyle of the Buddhist Monks. If you go to Coorg, this place is a must visit. Especially in the afternoon, the monks have a chanting session in a big hall. The monastery has several sections and all of them are really artistic which have paintings... More

The area is allotted by the Indian Govt. for Tibetan settlements and you can see many flags waving here and there in yellow / ochre. The Monastry is stupendous with its beauty and magnificence. Buddha Padmasambhava's statue is still in my mind. The height is gigantic and the sanctum has numerous Tibetan paintings. You can see the Tibetan monks doing... More

Nice experience seeing this monastery. It is pretty big and extends over many buildings. Well maintained. Recommend to visit during prayer time when you can see the whole floor filled with praying monks, drum beatings reverberating in the background and the air filled with chants.

The Monastery is brilliant but on weekends there is just too much crowd who are both unruly and seem to have a lower mental function. It is clearly written not to make noise and behave properly but people take the place for granted. Its a beautiful place to really feel calm and peace.

We visit this place whenever we go to Coorg and this time was no exception. We were very lucky to have landed here around 3:30 as that is the prayer time. The prayer ceremony is not to be missed.

We visited this monastery on our way back from Coorg to Bangalore. We reached around Noon when the prayers were in progress. This is an experience not to be missed. The gongs/bells/other instruments create a very powerful atmosphere which will enthrall you. The monastry as such is pleasant.

To view and experience the bliss of Buddha consciousness in our own backyard, this is a must visit place. The entrance to the Main temple complex has a huge photo of one of the leaders/head-monk at the top of a prayer hall. The Main prayer hall (on the left of the previous prayer hall) offers the travelers a peek into... More
