“Beautiful temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Clean and Beautiful Golden Temple on the way from Mysore to Madikeri, worth visiting once.
Very beautiful statues of Buddha and several beautiful paintings from Tibetian/Buddhist culture.
You'll also get some background of the struggle about Tibet.
I only wish tourists had sense to respect the temple as a place of worship irrespective of whether they followed Buddhism or not.
It was sorry to see people allowing their kids to run about making noise, spitting chewing gum while they were frolicking as if they were in a public garden.
Thank God my parents taught me to respect others' religion and place of worship!

“Awstruck @ Bylakuppe !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

One has to see to believe the grandeur of the main shrine !

The impact of this shrine is best felt when one enters here with humility in heart. Huge - 60' feet I learnt - statues of Buddha, Amitayus and Guru Padmasambhaba are looking down on the viewers , creating a sense of awe.

Some knowledge of ' Bajrayaan' iconography would help.

“"Little Tibetan Buddhist Temple "”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you like to visit Tibet, then you visit Bylakuppe Tibetean village with out Passport and Visa. Its a very nice monastery and it is the largest in South India and 2nd largest in India after Dharamshala (Tibetean Capital). This place located off Kushalnagar, this place is easily accessible from Bangalore - Marcara Highway Road. In side the temple delicately painted, every inch covered in colorful details of the rich mythology of buddhisim and the overall quiet of the huge meditation hall are worth a few minutes of quiet meditation and an hour or more for the shutterbugs!

“The Gift of the Tibetan people to India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This monastery is, in a way, the gift of the Tibetan people to the Indian community in return for the love they have got from the friendly region and the country. And there in the midst of the jungles of Karnataka is a feast for your eyes as a culture in contrast, shouting out the friendliness, harmony and the secular nature of the region,
