Shree Jalaram Mandir
Shree Jalaram Mandir
Welcome to Shree Jalaram Mandir of Greater Chicago, the only Jalaram Bapa's Mandir in US. With the blessings of Pujya Jalaram Bapa and utmost devotion of hundreds of worshipers Shree Jalaram Mandir organization was established in 2008 in the Northwest suburb of Hoffman Estates, IL. It has flourished as one of the busiest religious institutions in the Chicagoland area. Since its inception, the Mandir is making a significant progress and has become a major place of worship for devotees from all around the Chicagoland area and surrounding states. In addition to the regular worship of Pujya Jalaram Bapa, all major Hindu religious festivals and events are celebrated with greater joy and enthusiasm.
The Mandir facility was an originally a church when the trustees decided to buy the same at the cost of $1.25 Mil. Since then, a lot of improvements to the existing facility were done including placement of Gods pictures for daily worship and religious activities. From a small parking lot of 42 spaces, an expanded new parking lot of 120 spaces was constructed for the convenience of devotees. Also, many additions were done inside and outside of the building including the major expansion project at the expenditure of $3.2 Million.
The Sheelanyas pooja ceremony was completed on October 4th 2014. Many devotees surrounded the huge excavation site and participated in once in a life time event. Construction began immediately after the foundation laying ceremony was finished.
Finally, the grand ceremony of “Murti Pran Pratishtha” was completed on July 9th, 2016. This most important ritual was started with a “108 Kundi Shubh-Sankalp Yagna” on Saturday, July 2nd followed with four days of Murti Pran Pratishtha vidhi from July 6th to July 9th 2016. The idols are specially made by expert Shilpkars from Jaipur and are beautifully carved from Makrana marble stones. As a part of the grand celebration, Shrimad Bhagvat Katha was also arranged from Sunday, August 7th to 14th 2016 at Shree Jalaram Mandir. The Katha was narrated by the renowned spiritual leader Pujya Shri Rameshbhai Oza (Pujya Bhaishri).
