Established to preserve the traditional arts of Tibetan medicine and astrology, Men-Tsee-Khang is a college, clinic, museum, research centre and astrological institute rolled into one. The astrological folk can do you a 45-minute oral consultation (₹2000; arrange at least two hours ahead), or a detailed life-horoscope based on your birth time and place, which you'll receive by email and hard copy seven or eight months later (₹5015).
The Men-Tsee-Khang Museum has interesting displays on Tibetan medicine, told via illustrative thangkas (cloth paintings) as well as samples of medicines and the plants and minerals they're made from. Learn useful facts: cinnamon wards against flatulence and coriander combats anorexia, for example. Men-Tsee-Khang also runs occasional short courses in the basics of Tibetan medicine.
