  • It is amazing to note how much beauty exists in India. Namdroling monastery was a surprise which was both majestic and stunning in equal measures. It's beauty and grandeur can't be explained in photos or videos... you have to experience it. Just 4.5 hours from Bangalore this makes a perfect day trip or a weekend drive. Will definitely return to soak in more of this beautiful Tibetan monastery.
  • Pleasant holy place. Gives a calm atmosphere. You could see many big sculptures and different worship culture. The art and painting works on the walls are truly extraordinary and informative. If any one is available in the temple to explain what the art represent, it will be more informative. The place is cleanly maintained and the crafts which is sold inside temple premises are good and correctly priced.
