Rent Facility

The Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago offers different facilities to suit the renter’s needs. A brief description follows:

The Community Center

The Community Center is a humble addition to the existing beautiful temples, serving as a link between the Ramalaya and the Ganesha-Shiva-Durga (GSD) Temple on either side. Situated centrally in this large complex, its subtle traditional Indian architecture blends with the two existing temples. The Community Center has two levels with a total area of 19,775 sq ft. The auditorium on the upper level has a large stage and a hall with a seating capacity of 575. The dining-multipurpose hall on the lower level has a seating capacity of 300 people for dining and a kitchen with limited amenities. A rear approach road provides a convenient and direct entry to the porch and lobby of the lower level on the west side of the building.

The Ramalaya Auditorium

For smaller events not exceeding 100 attendees, the lower level of the Rama temple adjoining the Prasadam Kitchen is available.

To book a facility, please call the HTGC Office at (630) 972-0300, Extension #0.
