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.
