Jakhu temple in Shimla

 

One legend goes that Lord Hanuman stopped there to rest while he was searching for the Sanjivni Booti to revive Lakshman in the Epic Ramayana. The place is favourite for monkeys who come in huge numbers and grab the eatable and other belongings of the tourists.
On arrival at the temple signs advise visitors to secure all personal belongings and beware of the monkeys.

 

This is appropriate as the temple is in honour of the Monkey Lord. Visitors must remove shoes (and leave them in the "shoe house") before entering the temple.

There are several eateries at the temple site. Local visitors ring the bell for good luck before making the descent back into Shimla.
