Hanuman Temple

Local nameहनुमान मंदिर
LocationDelhi, India

Hanuman Temple in Connaught Place, New Delhi, is an ancient Hindu temple and is claimed to be one of the five temples of Mahabharata days in Delhi. The other four temples are the Kalkaji, a Kali temple in South Delhi containing Swayambu rock Idol, the Yogmaya Temple near Qutub Minar, the Bhairav temple near the Purana Qila and the Nili Chatri Mahadev at Nigambodh Ghat outside the walls of Old Delhi.The temple, which has a self manifest idol of Hanuman, has an unusual feature fixed in the spire in the form of a crescent moon instead of the Hindu symbol of Aum or Sun that is commonly seen in most Hindu temples. This became particularly important during the Mughal period corroborating this extraordinary depiction.The idol in the temple, devotionally worshipped as "Sri Hanuman Ji Maharaj", is that of Bala Hanuman namely, Hanuman as a child.
