Ivolginsky Datsan

The monastery complex is considered to be the center of Buddhism in Russia. It is located 35 km from Ulan-Ude in the picturesque valley of the Ivolga River. The monastery complex is home to the Buddhist institute Dashi Choinkhorlin (translated from Tibetan as “the land of happy learning”) where monks, the future lamas, study oriental and Tibetan culture, medicine, Old Mongolian and Tibetan languages and philosophy of Buddhism – the basis of the religion.

We will make a sacred circle (“goroo”) around the territory of the monastery and enter the temples. We will see the altar with lots of golden statues of Buddha, Buddhist stupas, Buddhist books, tankas and even the sacred Bodhi tree.
