Namdroling Golden Temple, Bylakuppe

Located inside Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery at Bylakuppe is the famous Namdroling Golden Temple. The path to the temple passes through a sprawling garden. 


The temple looks grand with a giant rainbow arch over it. The interior of this temple is amazing and brightly colored with paintings all over the place. The walls are intricately decorated with patterns and murals of Tibetan Buddhist themes. 


The altar of the Golden Temple contains the imposing  three golden images. They are Guru Padmasambhava (on the left), Lord Buddha Sakyamuni and Amitayus (on your right).


The statue of Lord Buddha is 60ft in height where as the height of other two statues are 55ft. Theyt are made of copper, plated with gold. Inside the statue are scripture, relics of great beings, small clay mould stupas, and small  statues.
