“A must see in Indianapolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is a very beautiful building both inside and out. The theater and ball room are especially beautiful. Gorgeous elaborate hand wood carving. Any visitor to Indianapolis should be sure to arrange a tour of this amazing Cathedral.

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

When we were in Indianapolis k
last May we stopped to visit the Cathedral. It is magnificent, and the gentleman there took us on an hours tour and not only explained the traditions of the Scottish Rite, but took time to point out the magnificent construction and wooden decors on the walls and ceilings. We were very glad that we stopped at this previously unplanned location. Don't you miss it!
