The Scottish Rite Cathedral is a magnificent building housing the Indianapolis Scottish Rite, a Masonic body that confers the 4th through the 33rd degrees. It is the larges building in the world dedicated to Scottish Rite Masonry. The building has a beautiful auditorium, a really attractive ballroom, and a large and impressive banquet hall. Monday through Friday lunch is served on the mezzanine level (1/2 floor down). The biggest problem is that tours (these are free and provided by members) are generally offered only on weekdays.

This is perhaps the most awesome older building in the city. The work that has gone into it and the dedication of the members is breathtaking. It is open for concerts and events, so don't miss this if you are a tourist.

The Scottish Rite Cathedral takes your breath away from the moment you walk into the door. The architecture alone is amazing. Then learn the history and foundation this beauty was built upon and you will be astounded. Attend a wedding here and you will be at a complete loss for words.

Old-World Atmosphere, heavy wooden furniture, fantastic organ. Most beautiful limestone facade with exquisite carvings of stone from Indiana.
Magnificent Structure historically and architecturally.

I've lived in Indianapolis for years and missed this one until last week.
If you live here or are visiting Indianapolis, this is a must see! Our Guide was great, informative and the building is beautiful.
