As Ram sits in the heart of Hanuman, so does Hanuman dwell in the hearts of millions of Hindus worldwide. He is regarded as the most powerful protector of the weak and the fallen, always ready to help those who pray to him by chanting Hanuman Chalisa. The devotees across the country have built hundreds of Hanuman temples for worshipping and seeking his blessings and assistance.
The temples are found not only in the big cities and towns, but in small villages and hamlets, even on the waysides in desolate terrains. Following this tradition, the people of Ram Nagria village, situated 2 km in the west of Sirsa city, have built a magnificent temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman.
They sing bhajans - devotional songs, chant the Hanuman Chalisa and perform aarti before the ochre coloured statue carrying the mace, the symbol of his godly might. The temple is particularly crowded on Tuesday when the devotees distribute boondi amongst the followers.
