In addition to the "yellow house" that hosts the secretary and is used for welcoming visitors, the Merigar centre consists of several structures surrounded by greenery and separated by paths. The library is open to all, and was created due to the need to preserve the first texts that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu brought with him from Tibet when he came to Italy in 1959. Today it preserves over 12,000 volumes, many of which are in Tibetan.
One of the most important buildings is the Temple of Great Contemplation, designed by Norbu and inaugurated in 1990 in the presence of the Dalai Lama. The large octagonal room is decorated with colourful traditional Tibetan motifs and has four doors, one for each cardinal direction; the main entrance is the one facing east, chosen for its symbolic value.
In the centre you'll find the Cinerary and three reliquary monuments called Stupas intended to promote a feeling of well-being.
