Visit Rajasthan

Khole Ke Hanuman Ji Temple

Khamma Ghani and Namastey to all, recently I visited Khole ke Hanuman Ji temple a beautiful place of Jaipur.  I have been waiting to share details of the place for a long time, so as soon as i made a trip there, I started writing this blog to give you a new place to visit when you plan your holidays in Jaipur Rajasthan (Rajputana).

 

The temple is located in midst of mountains (Laxman Dungri) of Aravali near Jaipur city, to reach the place you can rent an auto, cab or board a bus which is easily available from the centre of Jaipur city. The place is 8-9 km from the “Panch Batti” area of MI road (Around 30 Minutes of ride). When you move on Delhi highway (Delhi bypass) from Jaipur you will find a beautiful gate on your right built in the purest heritage look of Rajasthan (Rajputana) which serves as a milestone and entrance to the way to the Temple.

A road with beautiful trees and plants follows which gives you a delight to watch till you reach the main temple area. Once you arrive at the entrance you will see an astonishing view of the temple building from far, the path from the parking to the main temple building has a road with sidewalks. The sidewalks are made from stone crafted in sync with the Rajasthani (Rajputana) art and architecture, a mesmerising journey from the entrance to the building will give you lot of time to take groupies and selfies J, It also has sweet shops from where the worshipers buy offerings for the lord.

The temple area is surrounded by many other newly constructed buildings mainly for accommodating the worshipers and kitchens for organising holy events such as “Sawa Mani” (feast organised celebrating events like birthdays, retirement’s etc. serving Traditional food like “Daal Baatti and Churma”).

 

The temple is dedicated to Hanuman Ji, a symbol of devotion and physical strength for the followers. The temple is a combination of various levels of construction each of the level or floor is dedicated to different gods such as Lord Shiva, Ganesha, Ram Laxman and Sita etc. The core (1st level/Floor) of the temple is dedicated to lord Hanuman Ji. The hall is very spacious and can accommodate at least 500 people at a time, with a big sculpture of lord hanuman situated in its centre. The temple building is well planned with multiple entries and exits so everyone can reach the core and get blessings from the priest and see the god sculpture from up close.

The place is really good if you need a time being with yourself and get away from the day to day hassle of the modern life. The authorities of the temple are very helping so if you find any difficulties with your visit you can reach them for assistance.

My recent visit of the temple was in winter season, i would recommend everyone to visit this place in the months of Rainy season (Best time to visit) when the beauty of this area is at its peak, though the place is open whole year you can plan your visit here any time. Also if you can plan your visit in Morning or evening you will get a chance to get enriched by “Arti” sung by the priest and the worshipers.
