Really wouldn't make a special trip. The main building is closed for renovation. The great hall with enormous Buddha is worth seeing, but lacks atmosphere. More a photo op than an active shrine--no monks, no praying or chanting. Took only 30 minutes for comprehensive visit.

Culture buffs, nature buffs, this is the place that you have been waiting for. A bit of travel, a bit of a hike and a feast for the senses. Worth a visit!

It is close to Coorg aa well as mysore. It is in fact inbetween to both these places. Whether you visit Coorg or in mysore, this place is a must watch. Spiritual as well as peaceful, you will thoroughly enjoy your visit.

Truly a place to visit if you are in Karnataka. around 1 hours drive from Mysore and roads are awesome and GPS takes on spot on. Once feels relaxed and can really just sit for hours and relax (that is if there is less crowd). Very nice loved it.

I visited this place with my family in the last week of december. Its such a beautiful place.. so serene and calm inspite of the crowd. There is a strange sense of peace and tranquility around it. Must visit for anyone who visits Mysore or Coorg.

Serene, peaceful, clean and lot of positive energy.....entire place is beautiful and the monks speak local language (being a kannadiga, i was shocked)....people visiting this place should see the paintings and the detailing instead of taking pics and selfies (pure waste of time).....they have two shops which will offer you few things related to vaastu and buddhist religion....Take sandal soaps...

This has been one of my most memorable visit to south India. When we arrived there was a pin drop silence in the monastery and monks in hundreds were chanting together. Their chants echoed in entire environment and that experience can't be described into words!!! Definitely worth a visit !!!
