This temple is home to a rare statue of Lord Hanuman where he has his right hand raised in a slapping gesture. There is no mace (gada) or the mountain of Dronagiri in either of his hands. And unlike other temples where only the side of Lord Hanuman’s face can be seen, here one can witness his full frontal profile. Shivaji’s guru, Ramdas Swami, is credited with having this temple made here.


The Hanuman Temple may be small, but it is quite beautiful on the inside. The devotees of the Lord come here to meditate in serene environs and seek his blessings. Early morning and evening are the best times to visit, as the afternoons can get quite warm, especially in summer.
