One of the most beautiful, monasteries in India, this one is called as the Golden Temple, at Kushal Nagar at Coorg, Karnataka. The peaks are said to be set in gold, and as local folklore suggests, the land was gifted to the Tibetan refugee monks as a gesture of goodwill. The area houses prayer houses, schools and a hospital to treat the resident monks. A very peaceful place to visit indeed!
