    Peace among the crowd
    Ample parking space, vast shopping and cafe areas. And after crossing all those what you enter is a humangous santuary of peace. There are around 5 buildings in the campus but 2 are not open for tourists and most amazing chanting sounds and music comes out of those windows. Main building has 3 huge golden statues and you can feel peace in there. Though this place is over crowded speically over the weekend but its a good pit stop on the way to Coorg.

    Must to visit.
    Such a beautiful place. A must place to visit if you are in Bengaluru. If you go in the evening time like 4 to 6, there is a possibility of golden hour in sky which would make this kinda try look even beautiful

    Must visit place when going to Madekeri
    Visited the place enroute to Madekeri. We have to take diverted route of around 5 kms. The road stretch had some bad patches, but overall was fine they have a chargeable good parking area just opposite to the entrance. The monastery area was well maintained, the main temple area was very peaceful. They have a place where you can leave your slippers . There are shops that sell Tibetean products , snacks and food which could be explored

A beautiful Buddhist Temple with exquisite décor inside the temple. The main attractions inside the temple are the statues of Lord Buddha in the centre with statues of Lord Amitayus and Lord Padmasambhava on either sides. Visitors can pray, meditate, give their offerings and rotate the main prayer drums. Every part of walls, pillars and roof inside are decorated with attractive colourful images is a visual treat.

Mesmerising structure & peaceful vibes. It was my first visit to monastery. It was nice, well maintained. There is no entry fee & have place to keep shoes at minor fee. There are small shops around to pick momentos. Have toilets though I didn't use it so not sure about cleanliness. Must visit if you are around.

Certainly a must visit place if you vacationing in Mysore or Coorg. The peaceful feeling you get inside the Monastery is a very unique experience. Very lively place with positive vibes. You get to know a lot about Buddhist culture if you just look at the paintings all around the Monastery. A very well preserved heritage site for Buddhist.

Absolutely serene place. Ample space to park (opposite entrance), toilets (next to parking), shopping. Space to keep chappal too.

And one you go induce, depending on the time you can see the monks fill the entire large prayer hall changing in unison. It's a sight to behold!

It is widely known as the Golden Temple, Namdroling Monastery is the largest teaching center of the school of Tibetan Buddhism known as Nyingmapa, with its elaborately decorated temple tower and ornate outer walls decorated with elaborate murals. Around 1 PM, the prayer rituals are conducted, which are quite enjoyable to observe. Cameras are permitted inside the monastery so that we can capture some memories and fun facts about the location. While it is a wonderful place to visit, there are a lot of tourists gathered here, making it a crowded place to visit. There is a parking lot close to the temple where you can park your car. If you are looking for some souvenirs in the area, there is also a marketplace nearby if you are looking for something to take home.
