Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple in Shimla

Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiMaharajji's desire to establish Hanumanji Temple when and where, none could even guess.

Once, in the fifth decade Babaji went to Shimla and stayed in a hut at Taradevi, at a distance of about 6-7 km from Shimla, for about 9-10 days. Hanumanji (in the mind of Maharajji) was so much delighted with the beauty of that place that he liked to stay there.

Therefore, in the sixth decade, the then Lt. Governor, late Raja Bhadri and a devotee Shri Bhagvan Sahai acquired a piece of land and got a Hanuman temple built there.

How could Hanumanji live alone! So, mainly, Shri Rama, Sita, Laxmana and by their side Shankarji were installed. By Babaji's grace this Hanuman temple at Shimla has gained so much recognition that various celebrations are organized every now and then and not only the devotees but the tourists also enthusiastically participate in them. Especially on Ramnavmi, the foundation day of the temple, thousands of devotees have prasad in bhandara. Now the bhandara is held on every Sunday.

It appeared that the work was incomplete without the temple of Babaji Maharaj. So, by the inspiration of Shri Siddhi Ma, the trustees of the temple decided to build Babaji Maharaj's temple and to install his Murti therein. Shri Veerbhadra Singh, the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh laid the foundation stone on 10 April 1995.

The temple was completed and inaugurated on Ramnavmi, 25 March 1999, with grand celebrations.

Again Maharajji's temple was renovated and installed a new vigrah of Maharajji on Ram Navami the 17th April 2005.
