Welcome to Lerab Ling.

In one of the most beautiful and natural environments northwest of Montpellier in France, you can find a magnificent temple, which is at the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist Retreat Centre, Lerab Ling. In all aspects, the temple is inspired by the art and architecture of ancient Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas. Inside the temple is a 7-meter high statue of the Buddha as well as many authentic paintings and statues.

To respect and maintain the atmosphere of meditation and retreat, Lerab Ling is only open to the public:

  • On Sunday afternoons only from 2pm to 5pm for visits from 1 April to 4 November. Before Lerab Ling opens its gates on Sunday afternoons to visit the temple, you can join our community for lunch. Book your lunch onlineOutside these periods Lerab Ling is closed.
  • Upon request only (at least 14 days ahead) and during certain periods (from Tuesday to Saturday), it is possible to visit Lerab Ling in groups. It is also possible for the group to book a meal and join the community for lunch.

Please note – There will be no visits on Sunday 2 September.
