Travelogue Series… continues….

I have discovered “Incredible India” travelling extensively and took the opportunity to share my awesome experiences of the rich Indian Culture through my blogs…..

Jand Hanuman is an interesting place to visit. It has a beautiful temple of Lord Hanuman, which boasts of an 18-ft statue of Lord Hanuman (a Hindu deity) believed to have been made during the Mahabharata era.

One can also see small houses made from stones ! It is said that, if one builds an imaginary house with the help of stones lying around. If this house remains stable, you get a similar house in your real life. These type of stories lie around temples since ages !

Bheem’s Ghanti (flour mill) is also one of the attractive thing here. This flour mill is called the Bhima’s flour mill (Bhim ni ghanti). During the period of “vanvaas” “the Pandvas” came here and these are some signs of their presence at here.

History says that Pandava’s came here during their exile period (vanvaas). In Hedamba Van,  Bheem’s Chakki (flour mill) is still visible. This flour mill is called the Bhima’s flour mill (Bhim ni ghanti).  During the period of “vanvaas” “the Pandvas” came here and these are some signs of their presence at here. Around the temple, there is a Green forest  named Hedamba Van having a beautiful atmosphere. After sunrise no one is allowed to stay here. Every Saturday many devotees arrive here to take blessings of Lord Hanuman.  Hanuman Jayanti Festival is celebrated with great devotion and in a grand manner in this temple.
