Namdroling Monastery also locally known as the “Golden temple”, situated over a small hill settlement called “Bylakuppe” is one of the largest teaching center of Tibetan Buddhism in the world near Kushal Nagar, Coorg district in Karnataka.

This place is around 14 Kms from Kushalnagar, where one can see the largest settlements of Tibetian people in India and a visit to the place almost gives you an impression of, as if you were in Tibet, with the Tibetan style monasteries, food and of course Tibetan Monks. Tibetans have been driven from their home land and since then are fighting back to retain their homeland and traditions. Also at this place one can see hoardings of sacrifices of people from Tibet in processions against the Chinese government.
