This rare cultural treasure is one of Bloomington's "Must Visit" for Bloomington tourists (and natives!). The Dalai Lama's brother (in exile from the Chinese take-over of Tibet) came to Indiana University to teach and established this amazing Tibetan/Mongolian Cultural Center. His Holiness has visited many times, and the grounds are beautiful. There is a large collection of Tibetan prayer wheels... More

The Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center is not only a beautiful and peaceful place to self reflect but it is also a place to increase and enrich your spiritual knowledge. I went there a number of times while I lived in Bloomington, IN.

This place is good for people looking at a spiritual visit. The location is idea in the midst of woods and once inside you instantly feel at peace. If you are interested, they have a sermon on Sunday mornings. They have a gift shop too which has some unique items and though it is overpriced but you can think of... More

I have had the pleasure of spending a few peaceful afternoons here with my wife and daughter. This spot is a very quiet place in my experience, one of reflection and introspection. The staff here is approachable and open, willing to listen and teach, depending on what is appropriate at the time.

After growing up in Bloomington I finally got to visit the center. The monk gave a fantastic tour. The land/setting is super peaceful, the retreats here must be awesome!

Anyone and everyone are welcome here, free to walk the grounds and explore. We were welcomed and was given a brief introduction about the grounds and temple (shoes off before entering temple). There is a walking path that goes around the property that is worth the time to walk. Lotus pond with fish that come and take a look up... More

Such gorgeous grounds and surroundings. Inside you can see nature! Outside there is a stupa, the center and a gift shop where I found a lovely necklace for only ten dollars. The monk gave us a tour inside. Did you know there is the female Buddha, too? What an awesome culture exhibiting the ultimate diversity and tolerance, as the history... More
