The Namdroling Monastery (the Golden Temple) was established by His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche(1932-2009). His Holiness’ objective of establishing this prestigious monastery was to preserve the prestigious teachings of Gautam Buddha and pervade peace in this beautiful world.
The Monastery is located at Bylakuppe, a Tibetan settlement in Karnataka, and is accessible from Mysore and Coorg.
The walls are decorated with paintings from Tibetan Buddhist Mythology.
There is a statue of Buddha Shakyamuni (the founder of Buddhism), Buddha Amitayus (the Buddha of long life) and Guru Padmasambhava ( also known as Guru Rinpoche).
This place can be a nice afternoon trip and you can enjoy everything Tibetan around- from Tibetan souvenirs to food. If you are in Coorg and want to club more things on the same day, then the first morning stop can be Dubare Elephant Camp as it closes by afternoon and later you can visit Namdroling Monastery as this closes by evening. Also, you can check out Abbey Falls in Coorg.
