So I decided I will have to tick one more box off my bucket list which says - ROADTRIP! . I wander off in my car on a Monday morning at 5 taking the Mysore Road . Oh wait just for the record ? You can reach Coorg by two ways , one being via Mysore Road and two being via Hassan , although via Hassan is a bit on the longer side it has its own way of striking the travellers with awe!! With Shettihalli church PS this ones strikingly creepy and Belur in its way it has a lot on offer . Ok bleh , back to the story - so I reach Namdroling Monastery around 11-30 with all the stops for photos, breakfast but daaaaamn the roads until you reach the monastery will be a paradise, more like the road is all the way going to the horizon ! Namdroling Monastery-We have our own Tibet in our backyard and many of us don’t even know it exists
Our first stop was this little Tibetan settlement in Bylakuppe – The Namdroling Monastery, in Bylakuppe is built on the land donated to the Tibetan refugees by the Government of India.Don’t miss out on the Tibetan food here and ofcourse the shopping around the Tibetan market.
We went to Namdroling monastery, a little tibet in morning.
After visiting Abbi Falls, we visited this beautiful Tibetan temple. There is a 40 ft tall Buddha statue. The statues of Padmasambhava and Amitayus are also the notable ones. The walls of the temples and the institutions are decorated with colorful paintings depicting gods and demons from Tibetan Buddhist mythology. The altar is decorated with flowers, candles and incense sticks. The surrounding is very calm and peaceful.
