Guided tours of the Hindu Temple of Central Indiana are available by appointment during the hours that the Temple is open (please note that the Temple is closed on weekday afternoons). Please email your tour request to tours@htci.org at least 2 weeks or earlier in advance of your visit so that we have a volunteer available to show you around.
