Located on a steep hillside, on top of a huge rock, this Hanuman temple has a natural spring cascading over an idol of Lord Hanuman. As per legend, Lord Rama stayed with Lord Hanuman in this temple, after Lord Hanuman set Lanka on fire and returned. Lord Rama helped him pacify his anger. Nearby, a few more shrines are dedicated to Lord Rama, Goddess Sita and Lord Lakshmana.

The temple is home to several monkeys, as is typical of any Hanuman mandir. It is approachable by a flight of 360 steps, from where splendid views of Chitrakoot can be witnessed. Generally, jasmine oil and sindoor (vermillion) are given as offerings to the lord. Small idols of Lord Hanuman are placed along the way to offer prayers.
