We attended for a Christmas gathering and the building is absolutely breathtaking. They don't build things like they used to and this building is a shrine to the care and love that used to be put into meaningful architecture. If you ever have the opportunity to visit while in Indy, I definitely recommend it.

Been to two Wedding. Both were Fairy Tale and the Catjedral helps that to happen. One was afternoon and one was evening and the feel was miles apart. Their main hall can be as formal as anyone would want or as inviting as anyone needed. Just Beautiful!

The preparation for and take down from events made every attempt to go inside and tour the Cathedral impossible. Maybe calling ahead would help. Security wouldn't even allow for a peak inside because of event preparations. I was really disappointed.

This is one of the most spectacular buildings in downtown Indy. It is a little off the beaten path, but still central to Indianapolis.

The Scottish rite cathedral is one of the grandest buildings the city of Indianapolis has to offer. At one time (and maybe still) it was the most expensive building to replace in the city. This is due to both the quantity and quality of the hand craftsmanship. Every guild in town was trying to outdo each other when it was... More

We visited this building on June 12. When we saw the cathedral we wanted to see the inside. The entrance is not where you would think it would be in a church. It is on the backside (N Meridian St) when you come from War Memorial Plaza. We were not allowed to visit, because the tour started 2 minutes ago.... More

I ventured just a bit away from downtown and found this place. The architecture was beautiful and it was kind of cool to have a tour by a gentleman who was a Mason at this specific site.

Amazing place for an event! Our local high school's prom was held here after too many tickets were purchased to accommodate everyone at the original location. The staff was great to work with and very helpful with such last minute planning. Such architectural details and a wonderful venue
