Yes, in sheer size and scale it wud beat a lot many - but the touristy nature of the place kind of takes away the Zen of it all - i personally prefer a smaller, more quaint monastery in the north east regions - but the unique bit about this place called Bylakuppe is the fact that in the heartland...

It is basically at Kushalnagar, on the way to madikeri from Mysore. If you are going by bus, get down at byllakoppe, take an auto , it will take around 100 rs. The place is a great example of architecture, but due to lots of tourists, its loosing its charm. A monastery should be pure silent, but here due to... More

Its my first experience of a monastery. The HUGE Gold idols are breathtaking. The place is well kept and beautiful. People should understand it is a temple and a sacred place and not a tourist spot so please respect the monks.

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.
