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

A huge monastery with highest Tibetan settlement in south India around. Good to spend time in prayers hall. If you fancy Tibetan food there are authentic places in the town which serves home food.

A 60-ft golden statue of the Buddha, to be precise, flanked by two equally impressive figures. The trio is housed in the Golden Temple, located in the heart of India's second largest Tibetan settlement after Dharamsala. We chose to spend a weekend in Coorg because it promised wild elephants, monsoon soaked views of lush hills and valleys, and a home... More

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
