Somewhere in South of India, there is this little heaven called Bylakuppe where the Tibetan Indians dwell and built a place which is a sheer spiritual pleasure.

My visit to Bylakuppe, the Tibetan Settlement
I have been to Bylakuppe countless times yet I feel like going there again and again. When I am here, for a moment, I feel that I have travelled to the Tibet. It is indeed a little Tibet! I would suggest anybody travelling to Coorg to visit the monasteries at Bylakuppe also. It is a place to feel, explore and of course photograph.
Those who are fed up with the usual food like idly vada sambar and those who want to be adventurous trying difference cuisine can stop here for pure Tibetan food.
My visit to Bylakuppe came in as a surprise to me because it was not planned. After a night stay in Windflower Resort (Coorg) we were supposed to reach Mysore without any stops except for food. However, my parents wished to go to Bylakuppe which made me more than happy.
The photographs in this post are all captured in Bylakuppe. From top, the first photograph is of Namdroling Monastery. The second photograph was captured inside Namdroling Monastery – the three statues you see are of Guru Padmasambhava, Buddha Shakyamuni and Buddha Amitayus.
The third photograph is of an animal (probably a Lion) carved out Marble which is at the entrance to the monastery. The fourth photograph is of another Tibetan temple, and the fifth one is of Tibetan monks standing in the garden.
