Khole Ke Hanuman Ji Temple, Jaipur Overview

Located on the Delhi bypass in Jaipur at Lakshman Dungri, Khole Ke Hanuman Ji Temple is a Hindu revered temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman. The temple is perched on a hillock and offers some panoramic views of the surrounding hills. Besides, the shrine has a spacious sanctum which can accommodate around 500 people at once.

Khole Ke Hanuman Ji Temple was constructed by Pandit Radhe Lal Choubey in 1960. It is said that Radhe Lal ji was on an outing when he spotted a rock with a carving of Lord Hanuman. He thought of it as a sign and decided to build the temple. Some also recognize the area as Narwar Das ki Khol where Baba Nirmal Das spent most of his life worshipping Lord Hanuman centuries ago. When the temple was constructed, it was just a tiny shrine that occupied about 100 square feet of area in the Lakshman Dungri Hills. With time, the complex was expanded and new structures were built around the sanctum sanctorum.
