Long Description:
This temple does not have a website, and I cannot find any evidence that they are open to the public on a regular basis. However, it is sometimes open for viewing during architecture tours.

From the Chicago Architecture Center's Open House Chicago website:

This triangular-shaped brick church, originally Emmanuel Presbyterian Church, was designed by John Wellborn Root. Upon Root's unexpected death in 1891, it was completed by his famous partner Daniel Burnham. The building's simple geometry represents the signature style of Root that developed near the end of his short life. The building has been home to the Ling Shen Ching Tze Temple of True Buddha School since 1992. The temple is devoted to the teaching of Taoism, Sutrayana and Tantric philosophies. The facade and interior of the prayer chambers both display Vajrayana Buddhist embellishments and statues.
