    Another must visit
    When around BHU campus, this is nearby. Cameras and purse not allowed inside. Left the items in the car. So no photos to upload by me. The parking for cars is limited space ( ample for 2 wheelers ), so can get tricky if you do not have a driver. The place definitely needs better maintenance and managing crowds. Took Darshan from a distance as it was crowded and no line management. We went in the late afternoon.

    The temple have the idol that is quite beautiful but different from the other which I used to see in routine. Camera not allowed and it will be better to have the Prasad from inside the temple after getting the slip. Inside the temple premise there is another temple of Lord Ram. Overall very nice experience.

    A must visit - Ancient Lord Hanuman temple
    Trip to Varanasi is not completed without visiting the mighty Sankat Mochan temple. A divine place to be and tastiest Prasad you will ever find anywhere in India. Spend some time there sitting and enjoying the vibes.

Beautiful Hanuman temple in Varanasi established by Sant Tulsi Das. The idol is unique and beautiful. The temple is serene. Large numbers of devotees visit the temple everyday.

The sankat mochan hanuman temple i one of those temple which is very sacred. It is that temple where Tulsi das ji wrote Hanuman Chalisa. It is also believed that, Silver comes from the ground naturally. You can spot some of the silver on the black tiles around the temple which you are walking or doing prakaram or pradakshina. There is also a very old tree which stands still and you don't wan to miss that. After the terrorist attack on the temple, no electronical items like mobile phones, smart watches are allowed. You may carry your wallet. There is a locker facility at the entrance which you may use. We left everything in our car before going though.

This temple is on the outer side the city hence you will get low rush in the Temple. It is the temple you never want to miss and will try to go every time. It is a place where you want to sit & stay for relaxation from Stress & feel Peace at your heart. Worth Visiting

We went to Sankat Mochan Hanuman temple just before closing time. The bhajans were in full swing. We were just in time to see the Aarti. We had goosebumps at that time with the whole atmosphere 🙏
