A friend from CA and I visited here recently and were very impressed by the beauty and tranquility of the place. The lovely grounds, with some highly decorated worship sites and woodland paths, were quiet and calming in this fall weather. The koi pond was very pretty although it was too chilly to see the fish. The building which houses... More

It is a quiet and pretty place hidden in Bloomington. A monk welcomed us and introduced a bit about Buddhism and the Tibet Mongolian pagoda. It was so nice to learn a bit about Tibet, a place in my buck list .

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Tibetan Cultural Center wandering the grounds and observing the beautiful architecture and amenities. I am not a huge fan of gift shops but this one is different. There were two people working and we were able to talk with them, ask questions about items for sale and what we saw on the grounds. The grounds... More

We love visiting TMBCC when we're in Bloomington. Beautiful grounds, lovely gift shop, wonderful people. One of the lamas was kind enough to give us a tour of the Buddhist temple and explain the various Buddha statues and sacred texts when we inadvertently interrupted his meditation time. They also have a lovely koi pond at the far end of the... More

I love going here to chill out. And some of the best scarves in my prolific collection have come from their gift shop.

This is a truly spiritual and calming place. I stayed with my partner in cabin 4, and it was spotless, updated and beautiful. The back porch opened to pure, beautiful woods. The prayers with the monks on Sunday's are powerful and worth attending, regardless of what religion you practice. Be sure and visit the Happy Yak gift shop, it's full... More

My friend and I were looking for something unique and relaxing that we could do close to home, and decided to attend meditation class at the Tibetan Center in Bloomington. It's a beautiful gem of a place hidden in the edge of Bloomington that should be on your list. The meditation came with a lesson that was unexpected and the... More

The place is beautiful...but that is not the reason to go. You go to open yourself to an unusual experience. The people there spent a lot of time talking with us about their culture (but in NO WAY was there any "push to convert". The shopping there is small, but with special items.
