Vas Tomišelj se nahaja na južnem obronku Ljubljanskega barja ob vznožju Krima, pod gozdnatim Srobotnikom, ob lokalni cesti Podpeč - Ig v Občini Ig. Razteza se na obsežnem prodnem vršaju Iške, ki se je odložil ob stiku z barjem. V teh prodnih nanosih je tudi največ talne vode. Tu poteka stik barja s kraškim hribovjem. Skozi Tomišelj teče reka Iška, ki pa v tem delu pogosto presahne (izgine - ponikne) in se ob prvem dežju spet pojavi. Po približno 3 kilometrih se kot desni pritok izliva v Ljubljanico.

V Tomišlju že od leta 1886 deluje tudi podružnična šola. Med drugo svetovno vojno so italijanski vojaki maja 1941 zasedli eno učilnico, v šoli pa je bila tudi vaška straža. Leta 1943 so partizani stražarje napadli in pri tem požgali še šolo. Šolo, od katere je ostalo le zidovje, so po vojni obnovili in ta deluje še danes za učence od prvega do tretjega razreda. Poleg šole pa v poslopju deluje tudi vrtec.

Nad naseljem se odločno dviga župnijska romarska cerkev rožnovenske Matere božje ali cerkev Kraljice rožnega venca. Tomišeljsko cerkev lahko upravičeno imenujemo stara in kar preveč pozabljena božja pot. Kdor ima srečo, da se v lepem jutru pelje po cesti med Igom in Podpečjo, ko sonce obsveti Tomišelj in cerkev nad njim, se bo začudil, le kako so mogli mnogi občudovalci lepot slovenskih pokrajin obiti ta kraj. Nihče pravzaprav ne ve, kdaj in zakaj naj bi se začelo božjepotništvo na ta kraj vendar jo že Valvasor v svoji Slavi vojvodine Kranjske (1689) imenuje »stara božja pot«. V nekem starem urbarju naj bi bilo zapisano, da je v cerkvi, ki je bila prednica današnje, viselo zelo veliko zaobljubljenih podob in spominkov. Ti so pričali o uslišanjih, ki so se tu zgodila na priprošnjo Marije Tolažnice. Najstarejša votivna slika med njimi naj bi imela letnico 1519. Sedanjo cerkev so sezidali po letu 1720 (na pročelju je datirana 1722) po zgledu Marijine cerkve v ljubljanskih Križankah. Razloček je le pri zunanjščini, saj ima Tomišeljska dva zvonika. Za desni zvonik pravijo, da je verjetno še od stare cerkve. Ko se po 125 stopnicah povzpneš do cerkve imaš občutek, da si prišel na romanje. Pročelje je baročno razgibano in na obiskovalca naredi velik vtis.

Izpred cerkve se ob lepem dnevu odpira razgled od Iške vasi, preko Ljubljanskega barja do Ljubljane, Ljubljanskega gradu  in Rožnika ter naprej vse do vrhov Kamniško-Savinjskih Alp v ozadju.

Nedaleč od vasi poteka Koščeva naravoslovna učna pot, mimo Tomišeljske cerkve pa vodi tudi planinska pot na Krim.

Zakladek je skrit v gozdu za cerkvijo nedaleč od planinske poti na Krim.

Tomišelj Village is located on the southern edge of Ljubljana Marshes (or Ljubljana Moors) at the foot of Mount Krim, under the wooded hill of Srobotnik, accessible by local road Podpeč - Ig in the municipality of Ig. It stretches over a vast gravelly alluvial plain of the Iška River (Slovenian: "Iški vršaj"), where it meets the soil of the Ljubljana Marshes. These gravel deposits are rich in ground water. The river Iška is flowing through Tomišelj, but it often runs dry (disappear - sink) in this area but appears again after first rain. In about 3 kilometers, Iška joins the Ljubljanica river as its right tributary.

In Tomišelj a branch (or subsidiary) primary school is operating since 1886. During World War II, the Italian soldiers occupied one classroom in May 1941. There was also a village guard stationed in the school building. In 1943, partisans attacked the guards and the school was burned down. Only the walls remained from the old school. The school was rebuilt after the war. Nowadays pupils of first to third grade attend the Tomišelj school. The school building is also a home to the local nursery and kindergarten.

Above the village, a parish pilgrimage church of Our Lady of the Rosary, or the Queen of the Rosary church, is rising. The church in Tomišelj could justifiably be called an old and forgotten pilgrimage. No one really knows when and why the pilgrimage to this place began, but already in 1689 Janez Vajkard Valvasor called it “the old pilgrimage” in his “Glory of the Duchy of Carniola” (Slovenian: "Slava Vojvodine Kranjske"). According to an old urbarium (a register of property ownership), a small predecessor church with the oldest votive deposit dated to 1519 occupied the site. The present church was built after the year 1720 (dated 1722), following the example of the Križanke Church of Our Lady of Mercy in Ljubljana. The distinction is only in the exterior, since the Tomišelj church has two bell towers. It is assumed that the right bell tower is probably from the old church. When you climb the 125 steps to the church, you have a feeling that you are on a pilgrimage. The facade, which makes a big impression, is in a baroque style.

On a nice day, visitors can enjoy a beautiful view, which stretches from Iška vas over Ljubljana Marshes to Ljubljana, Ljubljana castle and Rožnik hill, and all the way to the surrounding peaks of Kamnik-Savinja Alps in the background.

Not far from the village, the "Kosec nature trail" takes place. One of the hiking trails to Mount Krim starts in Tomišelj near the church.

 The cache is hiden inthe forest behind the curch not far from the hiking trail to Mount Krim.
