This place is a must watch you can skip the stadium but not this. This place is known to hardly a few tourists so you don’t have to worry about the queues. It also has a small cafe where you can have Tibetan food and teas

The Gyuto monastery is a tantric college based on the Tibetan Tantric Wisdom. The monks relocated to Southern India in 1959. They often travel the world to bring their magical tantric chordal chanting to a wider audience. The bright yellow buildings make a stunning contrast to the majesty of the Himalaya which sits behind the monastery. The monks are exceptionally welcoming and allow visitors to wander through the beautiful temple and surrounds.

We were fortunate to arrive the monastery is the perfect time to join the monks on their prayer and chanting in the early morning, it was still dark outside at 5am in the morning, we were sitting at the end of the room, not allowed to sit on the monk benches, they were very warm giving us bread and tea and even some peanut butter for the bread. The most beautiful part was the chanting, it is an unbelievable experience, the vibration is so high that is hard to not feel you are levitating. We left 6:10am but the chanting were still in play. Recommendation: bring a pillow because it may be uncomfortable to sit long time on meditation posture.
