While traveling around Karnataka came across this beautiful place in Byalakuppe. The place resonates absolute tranquility as the Lord Buddha himself. The golden naturally lit statue was a real feast to the eyes. The darkness and the silence takes us to a complete different world.

Location: Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery, Byalakuppe, Karnataka, India
