The temple construction is getting closed to finished, with a final bill of $16,000. We would greatly appreciate your help and support in raising this amount of money so that we can all begin to enjoy a Ganesh temple in Brooklyn. All donations from the festival will go towards paying for the construction, minus the dakshina given to our priest, Prakash Bhat, for conducting the ceremonies.

Address: 206 Vanderbilt Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11205

The Broome Street Ganesha Temple was established in Manhattan in 2001, and moved to Brooklyn in 2016. It is a traditional South Indian Temple, with Sri Abhayankara Mahaganapati, Sri Rameshvara Linga, Sri Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati, and Sri Bhakta Anjaneya as the installed deities.

Currently, construction on the new temple has not been completed, and the new pratishtas have not been performed, therefore, the temple IS NOT OPEN ON A DAILY BASIS AT THIS TIME.

Once the pratishta is complete, the temple will operate on a full schedule. Until then, you may kindly check this page for our puja schedule.

Donations to the temple construction can be made here:
