About Jakhu Temple In Shimla

Jakhu Temple in Shimla is a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman and is famed for being home to thousands of adorable monkeys. There is a huge statue of Lord Hanuman at the temple, standing at 108 feet high, which is the cynosure of all eyes. The temple is located on the highest peak of Shimla, at a height of 2455 meters, and is a major attraction in terms of religious travelers. While trekking to the temple, visitors can see the 108-feet tall Hanuman Statue in Jakhu Temple, hidden behind the deodar trees. The Hanuman statue is visible from anywhere on the hill. 

Jakhu Temple History

It has an interesting legend behind it, related to the Ramayana. It is said that Lord Hanuman rested here while going back to put Sanjeevani Hill back in its place. And this is why the top of Jakhu Hill is flattened. The temple has been constructed around the footprints of Lord Hanuman. It is said that you must ring the bell by the doorway before leaving so that the Lord takes heed of your prayers.

Jakhu Temple timings

The Temple timings for visitors are from 7 am to 8 pm. The Jakhu Temple is located at a distance of 5 km from Mall Road in Shimla. For those wondering how to reach Jakhu Temple should know that taxis are available at Mall Road to visit the temple. 

Apart from its religious significance, Jakhu Hill is also a great place to enjoy some of the most beautiful views of Shimla. The lush green winding pathways that take you to the temple are a treat for nature lovers. Well paved and well maintained, people of all ages can easily walk the entire way without breaking a sweat, although you can also make use of the ropeway that has recently been put in place to transfer devotees to the temple.

    • Trip to Shimla

      Some of the hotels are good but locations are not easily accessible particularly when there are aged tourists with you. As for New Delhi hotels, please check with the hotel authorities whether they really meet star standards. For example, Good Luck hotel at Delhi does not fulfil the standards of a three star hotel. They don't even have plates to serve the food. Manali Hotel was the best. Hotel at Shimla was very co-operative and extended all possible assistance. On the way back, New Delhi hotel was very good. In all the hotels, except Good Luck, the staff members were very helpful.

    • Trip to Shimla

      Overall had a good experience except that the hotel provided to us at Manali was not as good as in Shimla. Also it took much more time communicating between all cities than mentioned in itenery like it took more than 10 hrs from Delhi to Shimla, more than 11 hrs from Shimla to Manali and more than 16 hrs from Manali to Delhi. It should have been mentioned beforehand. Our driver took us to a apple orchard near Manali which was very nice.
