A glimpse of Tibet in India. Visit the Golden Temple which is home to over five thousand Buddhist Monks and Nuns.
When you enter this place you will feel as if you have travelled to a different country. The Tibetan settlement of Bylakuppe was the first Tibetan Exile Settlement established in India in the 1960’s. Home to approximately 70,000 Tibetans making Karnataka the state with the most Tibetan refugees in India. As we drive for 1.5 hours through the countryside, we’ll pass through small villages and see farmers tending their fields and the villagers going about their day to day life. It is named the Golden Temple due to the golden paintings and idols within its walls depicting Tibetan Buddhism Mythology. It is one of the largest Tibetan Buddhism Teaching Centres in the world.
