Golden Temple

Reviewed By Karthik I

If you are visiting Coorg and are near Kushalnagar, drop in into the Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery in Bylekuppe. Popularly known as the Golden Temple, the Buddhist Temple is absolutely stunning and is sure to transport you to a different dimension.
Though renovation is is progress and is slated to get done by end of 2018, the main temple is now thrown open to visitors.
Home to one of the largest Tibetan settlements in India, Bylekuppe not only houses the big Temple, but also has guest houses, school, college, hostel, monastery for the monks, etc of the Tibetan community.
For shopping freaks, don't forget to buy some awesome shawls at the stalls around the monastery.

Sera Jey Monastic University

Reviewed By AddictedtoLife - Bengaluru, India

We visited the place during the week end and it wasnt the first time, rather an nth time to Coorg - but still love the place.
We decided to venture out to other monastries and Sera Jey was on the list.
What caught us first was the peacefulness there, since it was away from the crowd at the Golden temple/Namdroling monastry area.
Very colorful and aesthetically decorated - anyone would love it.
One can see students into practicing in another hall adjacent to the temple, however, did not venture into them .

Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery

Reviewed By pradeeptyagi944 - Mysuru (Mysore), India

I planned a family trip to Bylakuppe as we had heard a lot about the Buddhist monasteries. I must say it was a sight to behold the magnificent Namdroling monastery. Though it was crowded, my family members and I loved every moment of it. We also saw the morning prayer.

Dubare Elephant Camp

Reviewed By darkangel10 - maldon essex

Visited the elephant camp whilst on a trip to Kodagu to meet my daughter's new family after her wedding to a lovely Indian man.
The track to the camp on the river was closed so we had a 15 minute walk to the river, despite the car parking near the river being accessible as the road works had just started. A member of our family, at 68, had problems walking the distance in the heat. On the return journey he had to pay for a 'taxi' to be able to get back to the entrance.
The water level in the river was very low so we had to cross the river by the stepping stones which we re a bit slippery but all traversed the stones ok.
We all then had a lovely time 'washing the elephants' in the river and then feeding them with straw and corn.
The camp was very quiet when we visited so there were no queues.
We saw no evidence of cruelty by the mahouts.
Visit tip.......... come early and avoid the crowds.
