Hanuman mandir, Amritsar


Hanuman Mandir, situated on the northwestern corner of Durgiana Temple, is a must visit Hindu temple in Amritsar. Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, this beautiful temple is believed to be the site where Lord Rama performed his Ashwamedha ceremony. The temple is most acclaimed for the langoor dance performed by the devotees at Langoorwala Mela.

Popularly known as Bara Hanuman Mandir, this ancient shrine houses a magnificent idol of Lord Hanuman in a sitting posture. It is a local belief that a daily visit to this temple can fulfil every wish of the devotees. The couples seeking for a male child tie a thread to the ancient banyan tree standing in the courtyard of the temple and untie the same during Navratras after their wishes are fulfilled. As a custom, the male child dress as langoor for nine days and on the conclusion of Navratras take off their outfit near the same banyan tree.
