KIBI - Karmapa International Buddhist Institute KIBI - Karmapa International Buddhist Institute



KIBI has a beautiful four-storied building constructed in a Tibetan architectural style. It overlooks the greenery of Sanjay Van, a large forested park facing the distant Qutab Minar. Classes take place in the auditorium and five classrooms in the main building. Our excellent, well-assorted library on the first floor offers you a wide selection of great Dharma books.

For your convenience, there is a coffee shop where you can have a break between the classes. On the same level is the administration office. At the basement is a dining hall where you can enjoy three meals a day.

The large meditation hall decorated with thangkas hosts a huge Buddha statue filled with precious relics. The hall invites you to meditate between the teaching sessions. Surrounding the main building are rooms for up to 300 people. We offer our teachers, students and guests two types of rooms: Small rooms with an attached private bathroom and common rooms with shared bathrooms. All rooms are equipped with a minimum of two beds, bed linen, a desk and chair, book shelf and wardrobe.
