Bylakuppe is a small town two hours from Mysore, reserved for Tibetan refugees. These people fled China during the invasion of Tibet in 1959. Here live 10,000 Tibetans and more than 3000 are monks. The photo was taken near the Golden Temple, at the apartments of these monks.

Unfortunately I could not do a lot of photos because the entrance was forbidden(worth 5 years of jail). I managed to come from around the backside at lunch time and spent 10 minutes before being gently kick out.
