One of the largest Tibetan settlements in India, the Namdroling Monastery is home to over 6000 monks and over 15000 refugees. But that’s not why the Namdroling Monastery is a renowned name in Coorg. With a spiritual and serene ambiance, this is a colony that shelters a forty feet-high Buddha statue inside a golden temple. The interiors showcase intricate wall paintings with depictions from the Buddhist mythology. Interspersed with neatly manicured gardens and tiny souvenir shops, this monastery is of great interest to tourists and backpackers alike.
