Unfortunately, we visited on a Saturday so the place was beset with groups of young Indian men, shouting and taking hundreds of photos of each other and themselves (and asking me to join them), despite the...

Visited this monastery last year while on the way to Coorg. Very quiet place with 3 large statues of Buddha adorned with gold. You can also interact with the monks who live there. They will tell you different customs and traditions of Buddhism. Really nice place to visit if you're looking for peace.
