The Golden Temple, Coorg

let the journey begin! : )

Hiya Everyone. 🙂

We had a long 8 hour drive from Bangalore airport till Madhekeri, Coorg . We stopped at the beautiful monastery called Golden Temple in Coorg. Well it is literally a ‘Golden Temple’ (check pics 😛 ) . The architecture was magnificent. We were lucky enough to reach the temple during evening time. We could see the monks chanting and taking rounds of the temples. One room was lit with hundreds of diyas. There were little ducks hopping in the lawns. The whole view was serene in true sense.

It was a beautiful beginning to our Coorg trip. Sharing some pics with you guys. Have a great week ahead everyone. 🙂

    Little bit of correction.
    1. Temple in Buddhism are called as Gombpa or monasteries in English.
    2. That is not a Dalai lama. Despites China’s claim. there will be only one Dalai Lama. Current reining Dalai Lama is the 14th Dalai Lama, resides in Dharamsala, HP. His real name being Tenzing Gyatso.
    The image you see is of Penor Rinpoche, the one who established Namdroling Monastery, a.k.a Golden Temple.

    BTW keep rolling, i follow your post very regularly albeit silently.

    Thanks

    Hi Rati. I have been following your blog, IMBB and Misfit for more than 4 1/2 months now. I love that there is such an amazing beauty community of Indians, thanks to IMBB. I just wanted to ask a question. I am compiling a list of Indian bloggers on WordPress platforms. Can I include your website IMBB and blogs and link to them?
    If yes, thanks and if no, no problem. Let me know.
    Have a nice day!
