At the indicated time at the Yellow House you will find a guide ready to welcome you and tell you the history, symbols and characteristics of the various buildings. The visit lasts about two hours. The visit is free and registration is required.

Next visits to be scheduled.

The meeting point is in front of the Yellow House where you will find your guide (please check the map below). Here is also the reception, where you can get the first information about Merigar and its activities and take a map. You will also find the books by the master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and a small shop with Asian crafts. 

You can visit:

  • the Temple of the Great Contemplation​​​​​ (Gönpa), conceived, designed, and developed by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
  • the Stupas and enjoy the landscape surrounded by nature
  • with a short walk you can reach the Library, where an expert will take you among traditional texts, Tibetan letters and scriptures.
  • On some occasions, either a meditation experience or a breath awareness session will be offered. 

In case of good weather we will walk between the various buildings, so suitable shoes are recommended.

The guided tour which includes explanations on Merigar, the Temple of the Great Contemplation and the Stupas takes place outdoors, so the "green pass" is not mandatory to participate. The "green pass" is instead necessary to access the Temple: it will still be possible for everyone to hear the description and admire the decorations from the outside, through the various openings and thanks to the large windows on the octagon. The "green pass" is instead necessary to access the part of the visit that takes place in the library.

Large groups will be divided before entering the buildings. Participants must keep a safe distance, must bring a face mask and sanitize their hands at the entrance to the buildings. Those who have a fever or flu- like symptoms may not participate, nor can anyone who has been recently in contact with people with Covid-19.

Visitors are always welcome to walk around the Merigar lands, but apart from the scheduled guided tours it may not be possible to enter all of the facilities.

The secretary is here every day except Tuesday and Thursday, from 9 to 13 and 15 to 17:30.
