Bylakuppe Golden Temple

On the way, you can also choose to stop at the Bylakuppe Golden Temple, just 20 minutes away. Bylakuppe is an area in Karnataka which is home to a Tibetan settlement, and is the second largest Tibetan settlement in the world outside Tibet after Dharamshala.

Try a hand at rotating the prayer wheels that surround the monastery compound. The wheels contain consecrated mantras and prayers, and it is believed that those who turn them in a clockwise direction and with a pure motivation of benefiting others are creating the causes and conditions that will eventually place them in a position where they themselves can help relieve others of their suffering. Although turning the wheels is considered an alternative to chanting mantras, most devotees combine the two activities. The renowned Tibetan monastery is not too far from Coorg Wilderness Resort, and offers a calm sense of serenity and peace to all who visit.
