Considered to be one of Allahabad’s most important temples, the Hanuman Temple is a favoured religious destination among Hindus. It was built in 1787 and houses a 20 feet idol fo Hanuman in reclining position. Other prominent Hindu Gods are also enshrined in the temple.
Over the years, the temple underwent several renovations, the last which took place in the 1940’s. The temple is centrally located and is close to the main railway station. It is open throughout the year for pilgrims to offer prayers.
The temple is located near Allahabad fort near the banks of the river Ganga and when the river is flooded, the temple gets submerged in the water.
