Bylakuppe Tibetan Settlement

Tomorrow is a "Moonday". There is no yoga practice during full moon and new moon. So since we are "off" tomorrow, we decided to go to the Bylakuppe Tibetan Settlement, which is especially famous for its Golden Temple and lots of Tibetan monks.

"Two generations of exiled Tibetans call India "home" at the Bylakuppe Settlement located approximately 2.5 hours from Mysore. It is a town in itself, rich with Tibetan culture.
Artist cooperatives are scattered throughout where you can view and purchase traditional Tibetan arts and crafts.
Sera Je is Bylakuppe's largest monastery with over 2,000 resident monks. Here you can stay at the gursthouse and be part of the morning puja if you wake early... "
"The largest Tibetan Buddhism teaching center is Namdroling monastery, which houses the Golden Temple where three golden images of Sakyamuni Buddha, Padmasambhava and Avalokitesvara have been placed facing Tibet. These statues stand approximately 40 feet tall and are made of gilded bronze."
