I have been to quite a few monasteries but the Namdroling Monastery stands out because of its lovely vibrant colors. Not to be missed if going to Coorg.
Dedicated to the teachings of wisdom and compassion of the Buddha and the palyul Lineage of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. located amidst the Sandal groves a 60 KMs from Kaveri Nisargadhama , few hours from Bangalore & Mysore in Karnataka South India. Namdroling monastery was established by his Holliness Pema Norbu Rinpoche shortly after he came to India from Tibet with only 300 rupees in his hand and with just a handful of Monks, he laid the foundation stone of the three storied main temple that then covered an area of 80 sq feet. His Holliness the Dalai Lama Consecrated the spot and bequeathed the name "Namdroling Monastery". Today the Monastery is home to nearly 5000 Monks & nuns, renowned as a center for the pure upholding of the teachings of the Buddha.
After visiting to monastery I had some food with my tourmates at Tibet kitchen hotel which is just nearby the Monastery and we also took some rest nearby the Monastery and again we started our journey back to Bangalore in evening with our two wheeler bike.
It was really a memorable tour for us and we enjoy the whole trip fully.
