My friends and I were planning for a weekend getaway from Mysore and this time we all wanted to go to Coorg in Karnataka. Because of its splendid scenic beauty, lush green environment and coffee plantation, Coorg is among one of the most loved tourist places in Karnataka and no surprise that it is known as “The Scotland of India”.
It was a beautiful Saturday morning of March and we all were ready with our backpacks, we started at around 6 am from Mysore. The distance between Mysore and Coorg is around 110 kms, we reached Coorg by around 8 am.
1. Namdroling Monastery
Our first stop in Coorg was this Buddhist monastery which is also known as Golden Temple. When we reached the main hall of Monastery, the Buddhist people were performing morning prayer in a very large gathering. We spent around 40-50 minutes there as it was immense pleasure to participate in Buddhist prayer for the very first time in my life.
