Ten Famous Temples Of Lord Hanuman You Must Visit #9

Shri Hanuman Temple Jamnagar

Jamnagar is a city located on the western coast of India in the state of Gujarat in the Saurashtra region. It is the administrative headquarters of the Jamnagar district.

 Jamnagar is the largest city on the westernmost side of India and is the fifth-largest city of Gujarat state after Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, and Rajkot. The modern look of the city was initially given by Jamsaib. 

Bala Hanuman Temple, also known as Shri Balahanuman Sankirtan Mandir is situated at the south east side of Ranmal Lake (or Lakhota Lake) in Jamnagar. Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the temple is separated from the lake by a wide road. The simple looking structure houses the idols of Lord Ram, Lord Lakshman, Goddess Sita and Lord Hanuman.

Since 1st August, 1964, chanting of Ram dhun – ‘Shri Ram, Jai Ram, Jai Jai Ram’ goes on in the temple premises, day in and day out. This 24×7 ritual has been acknowledged and listed by the Guinness Book of World Records.

 The local population has deep faith in the temple and believes that it guards them against natural calamities and other troubles. Arti (ritual of worship) takes place twice in a day (morning and evening). The evening arti is the most awaited event of the day.

The Lakhota Lake is visited by various species of birds, particularly during the period of migration, making the overall atmosphere more special. Lakhota Fort and Museum are located on an island inside the lake and can be reached through two pathways that connect them with the bank. One can enhance the fun by indulging in boating inside the lake.

  1. My late father visited your amazing country in the 1990s when he was living and working in Singapore. It has been a life-long dream of mine to follow in his footsteps. Lord Hanuman is a very interesting deity who reminds of what we call in Roman Catholicism as “Sacred Heart of Jesus.” Are you familiar with Sacred Heart of Jesus?
