Event Halls and Rooms Available for Rent

For centuries, the halls of ancient temples of India have echoed with the sounds of jingling bells and lilting classical music. Performing classical arts in these sacred dwellings of the Lord is not only blissful but also brings about a divine element to the classical art form. An ocean away, we are very fortunate that local artistes can continue the same Indian tradition in the auditorium and event halls of our own Shiva-Vishnu Temple in Livermore. Here, the artistes and the audience are enveloped in a spiritual environment elevating their enjoyment.

In the Lakireddy Auditorium the performers enjoy the convenience of an auditorium with state-of-the-art features. This makes this Auditorium an ideal venue for dance and music Arangetrams/Rangapravesams and other cultural performances. Dance and music performances can also be performed in the Akella Assembly Hall. In addition, the Hindu Community and Cultural Center (HCCC) has a number of smaller event halls where cultural programs, religious functions, Bhajans, lectures and meetings can also be held.

We are delighted that you are considering HCCC’s facilities for your event. We are eager to make your event a memorable occasion and we hope that this brochure will help you plan your event.

Getting Started: Planning your event at HCCC’s facilities begins with meeting our Facilities Manager who will provide you with the various options. You have a range of choices of an auditorium and event halls that will suit your needs for the type of event, number of guests and the needs for audio and webcast facilities. If you would like to serve snacks or meals during or after the event, HCCC has catering options that will provide fresh, hot food to your guests from our kitchen. You also have the choice of a Temple priest conduct the puja prior to the commencement of the event.
