Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Karnataka, India

The Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery-
Golden temple
In my recent visit to Coorg in Karnataka, I discovered that Coorg has a little Tibet in it. In fact it is one of the largest settlements of Tibetans in India .Very colourful and serene, the Tibetan settlement is near a place called "Kushalnagar" in Coorg. Kushalnagar will take you around 4-5 hours to reach by road if you are driving from Bengaluru.

I found out from Wikipedia that "The Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery" happens to be the largest teaching centre of Nyingmapa in the World.

Here is a video which will give you a glimpse into the beautiful Golden temple in the monastery complex. More on Coorg in my next post.
