Golden temple

This is India's second-biggest Tibetan monastery. It has two universities and two monasteries. This is situated near Kushalnagar, 30 Kms from Siddapura, and known as “Byle Kuppe”.  Although refugees, Tibetians have kept their culture and heritage intact. Tourists can witness their way of life, architecture; even taste Tibetian dishes and buy Tibetian handicrafts. Regular buses operate from Kushalnagar to Periyapatna via Bylukuppa.
