The Jakhu Temple of Simla

The Jakhu Temple of Simla is dedicated to the monkey God, Hanuman. It is situated on Jakhoo Hill, still in walking distance from the Ridge at a height of 2,455 m (8,000 feet) above sea level. Shimla’s highest peak offers a panoramic view of the Shivalik Ranges and the town of Sanjauli.

One legend goes that Lord Hanuman stopped there to rest while he was searching for the Sanjivni Booti to revive Lakshman in the Epic Ramayana. The main temple is small and by far not as impressive as the giant statue of Lord Hanuman. Lots of monkey action at the garden next to the temple. A nice walk up – i recommend to have a look for yourself!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
