The economic downturn has slowed but not stopped progress on the new Tibetan Buddhist Namgyal Monastery on South Hill.

 Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies was established in Ithaca in 1992 as a branch of the Dalai Lama's main monastery in Dharamsala, India. Ithaca hosts the Dalai Lama's only personal monastery in North America.
