About Hanuman Mandir, Jhandewalan
Hanuman Mandir Jhandewalan, one of Delhi’s most popular temples was built in 1997. The temple is also known as Sankat Mochan Hanuman Mandir. The Giant 108 feet tall Murti of Hanumanji here is a unique sculpture. The entrance to the temple is in the shape of an open mouth of a Rakshas. At the base of the statue is a small shrine dedicated to Kali Mata. Tuesdays and Saturdays are particularly crowded with devotees.
This temple is not to be missed (it’s actually hard to miss) if you’re in Karol Bagh. Take a short detour to see the 34m-tall Hanuman statue that soars above both the roads and the raised metro line. Getting up close, there are passageways through the mouths of demons to a series of atmospheric, deity-filled chambers.
A Unique feature of Jhandewalan Hanuman Mandir
During the evening Aarti the statue of Hanumanji moves back a bit and the chest slide apart to reveal the Murtis of Shri Ram and Sita Mata. This site is eagerly awaited and witnessed by devotees.
