Bylakuppe is a Tibetan settlement area established by Lugsum Samdupling in 1961 and Dickyi Larsoe in 1969 and is situated to the west of Mysore District in Karnataka. 

It is about 6 kilometres from the twin town of Kushalanagara and is home to the magnificent Namdroling Monastery or Golden Temple. 

Namdroling Monastery is the largest teaching centre of Nyingmapa, a lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, in the world, and houses over five thousand monks and nuns. 

The town is a delight to visit during festivals such as the Tibetan New Year (Losar), which is celebrated with much fervour at the monastery. The Golden Temple, which is a popular tourist attraction, has three resplendent golden statues of Buddha Shakyamuni, Padmasambhava and the Buddha Amitayus.
