Hanuman Garhi Temple: The Majestic Statue of Lord Hanuman

Location: South of Tallital, Uttarakhand

The picturesque location of the Hanuman Garhi Temple is known to all those who have admired the beauty of Nainital. Perched at a height of 6,401 feet from sea level, this famous temple is dedicated to Lord Hanuman, an avid devotee of Lord Rama and Sita Mata. The temple was constructed by a famous local saint, Baba Neem Karoli, in the year 1950. Legend has it that being a devout worshipper, Lord Hanuman had once ripped open his chest to reveal the image of Lord Rama and Sita Mata reigning in his heart. The same event is illustrated in the image at this temple.

Adjacent to the temple stands a huge statue of Lord Hanuman, carrying a beautiful golden umbrella. The statue is seraphic in its appearance. Apart from the religious importance it holds, this place is also famous for its naturally perfect location that allows the visitors to witness a scenic vision of the sun gliding up and down the mountain. The mesmeric view of the sun offered here has popularised this place as the best sunrise and sunset point in Nainital. The temple is easily accessible, without much of  climb.

Whether you have a spiritual bent of mind or would like to witness the enchanting view of the sun, visiting the Hanuman Garhi Temple is definitely a must!

Hi, you wrote “The temple was constructed by a famous local saint, Baba Neem Karoli, in the year 1950..”; just curious, is there any proof of that?, him personally working on that structure?; or, did he have other people to build it and his name came on top of it? Also, how was he “local” if he was born elsewhere, had a family and died in Agra hospital?
