It's a great, inviting, quiet, serene place to visit. Also of course Tibetan Monks live and meditate there so please keep your voices low and be respectful. Take off your shoes if you decide to go inside temple. T

I discovered that this place existed thanks to trip advisor. We followed the suggestions and went there on a no-rain day. I loved the altars both in the cultural center and in the temple. It was lovely to see all the Holy Books present around the altar in the temple. I loved the decorations and the garden is worth taking... More

Bliss. Peace. Harmony. Serenity. Just a few of the emotions I experienced when I visited the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center. I visited in early afternoon on a damp rainy day but it made for the most wonderful experience. When I arrived I first visited the gift shop and was directed to the temple and cultural center. As soon as... More

don't miss spending at least an hour wandering on the grounds of the TMCC. I come here every week and don't get tired of the beauty, peace and cultural richness. I also recommend visiting the altar in the far end building.

A friend who is connected to the center took me on a guided tour of the temple and the grounds. I highly recommend including this ecological and spiritual sanctuary on your visit to Bloomington, IN It is very beautiful and you can get info on staying in their small cabins near the woods.

I was not sure what to expect entering the paved drive into the cultural center. I planned to visit here as an educational experience for my daughter while out-of-school, and visiting relatives. We stopped at the mailbox inside the grounds and retrieved a map of the monuments and buildings of the grounds, their names and meanings. There was also a... More

A visit to the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center is a fine idea for anyone visiting the Bloomington area. I was surprised to find this center in middle America, but when I learned the family background (Dalai Lama) I understood. You will need transportation to reach this location. A visit can be as long or as short as you might... More

The brother of the current Dalai Lama lived here for many years. It's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, very green and peaceful. There seems to be a number of folks ready to explain the various aspects of the temple and stupa. I thought it was quite interesting.

It was such spiritual place. I love the scrolls, the trees, the prayer flags. It was so not-Indiana. They also host retreatsand I would love to attend sometime.
