The tall and imposing statue of an Orange Hanuman was seen from The Mall. I immediately decided I wanted to go there up and close to my favorite Hanu -Man. So, the next morning I left Clarkes hotel at 8.30 am by car, it took a good 25 minutes to reach the point where other states' car are not allowed... More

The temple itself is modest, though the hill on which it is on isn't. Its the hill which served as a stopping point for the Lord Himself on his way to Lanka carrying the Sanjeevani mountains and apparently so forceful was the landing that the mountain sunk to half its size upon impact. Beware of monkeys though as they are... More

Beautiful Temple , Magnificient Lord Hanuman idol, very clean colorful premises, elevated location. Wonderfully maintained premises, must visit for pilgrims & Tourists alike. If going by own vehicle plan to park a few meters away from Temple after you reach the top as the approach to Temple is in a narrow uphill road. Just be beware of Monkey's. It's a... More

This place is a beautiful place to visit. Situated on tip of hills makes it a bliss for nature lovers. 1.5 km trekking on Jakhoo road is the best way to reach this place. However, above average physical strength is required. Though bench for resting are present throughout the trail. Beware of monkeys as they're present everywhere around the temple... More

A must temple if you are shimla. Situated at peak after reaching there you will have good panoramic view of moutains and Shimla. Awesome.

One should visit this temple at least once in a life time. Great place and loved the peace that one gets after visiting. But beware of the monkeys. They don't harm people but the naughty ones snatch things from people.

if you love tracking, go by stairs not by road, will take less than 1 hour and you will enjoy more, elder people and other that unable to walk can go by bus / sharing cab
