The positive vibrations felt when the monks chant, is simply beyond words. Calm and serene place. Do spend enough time at the prayer hall to experience this. The idols of Buddha in gold, is breathtaking.

one of the Tibetan settlements in India where you can experience the true culture of Lama's. I found this place as rejuvenating & equally let you mingle with the Tibetan lama culture.

It is good place to spend some time, however the parking is quite chaotic and mis managed, better to park the car outside and then walk to the place. The shops charge too much on the products better not to buy

The golden monastery is beautiful with vivid colours, the humongous space, well laid out gardens, greenery and the imposing, absolutely beautiful statues. Cons: 1. The bathrooms are AWFUL. 2. Nobody there to explain the idols, Go there if u have time

Bylakuppe Buddhist Monastery is certainly a place to visit while you are around Coorg and unwind yourself to serenity of peace and harmony. Must visit to pay respect to such holy place. All credit goes to them who keep this place so natural till now

The monastery is very beautiful. You will be awestruck the very moment you see the main temple and the large gold plated status in there. Its a complete miracle for such a monastery to be in a place like Mysore. We really enjoyed the visit.
