Welcome People From All Walks Of Life To Drop In 

Pay Respect to the Buddha

Join Us in Our New Journey!

We are excited to announce that after a dedicated period of 2 years and 8 months of construction, our dream has materialized into a stunning 4-story temple building. Today, we joyfully welcome you to visit us and join our events! This new space is not just a building; it's a sanctuary for nurturing the mind and body, a hub for community engagement, and a center for enriching educational experiences. We invite you to step into this serene spiritual haven, explore what we offer, and become a part of our ever-growing family. Discover more about our vision, programs, and upcoming events by visiting us at IBFA Chicago Temple.

Thank you for being a vital part of our community and for making the Enlightenment Temple a beacon of hope and spiritual growth. Together, let's continue to make a difference!

We recently celebrated our official opening with a heartfelt ceremony on Vesak Day, May 26, 2023. If you missed the live event, don't worry – we've captured the essence of this special day in a video, available for you to view right here. Join us virtually as we commemorate this new chapter and envision the countless moments of learning, service, and spiritual growth that await us in this new home.
