Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple
This temple was founded by Tulsidas, a great saint and author of the Ramacharitamanasa, the Hindi version of the Hindu epic Ramayana; which was originally written by Valmiki. The temple is located about 6.8 km from the railway station and bust stand of Varanasi and 3 km from the BHU.
The deity was named “Sankat Mochan” meaning the “reliever from troubles”. … In the temple, offerings to Lord Hanuman (called Prasad) are sold like the special sweet “besan ke ladoo”, which the devotees relish; the idol is also decked with a pleasant marigold flower garland as well.
There are also idols of Lord Shiva, Lord Rama and Lord Ganesha in separate complexes in the main Sankat Mochan Hanuman temple compound. The idols have been arranged in such a way that temple looks like circular in shape. The temple of Lord Ganesha is inspired by the South Indian architectural style.
