Monks of Golden Temple Kushalnagar

During my recent road trip to Kerala from Chennai, on the way back we stopped by at Bailkuppe close to Kushalnagar, Coorg, Karnataka to see the Golden Temple (Namdroling Monastery). These were some of the photos of the monks.

Elephants on the road

This was during my drive from Bangalore to Payanur, Kerala. We spotted these somewhere after Gonikoppal, Karnataka on the way to Kerala. Only later we realized, when we were looking at these photos, that probably they were domesticated. There were chains around the legs and one elephant had a bell around its neck. But it was still a wonderful feeling to have sighted these giants.
