Unfurling Shimla by trekking or hiking would disclose the hidden and unseen splendor of this hill station located in Himachal Pradesh. The places of tourist attraction are unending in the fascinating hills of Shimla. Jhaku Temple Shimla is among one of them. Being hardworking person by nature I always put my best efforts to get the highest yields and at the same time I love to travel in and outside India to unwind with great pleasure. I never forget to pack my camera before packing my luggage for travelling and I am fond of relaxing in the nearest spa centers wherever I travel. These activities put me in the land of quest and excitement. Visiting this temple of Shimla was equally an affair of exhilaration.
Located 2km away from the heart of the city, the temple is bestowed with its reviving beauty and offers a captivating view of the hills and remote mountain ranges. Sunrise and sunset are equally thriving from this state of point at the time of monsoons. The temple is the holy shrine of Lord Hanuman, the prime worshipper and devotee of Lord Rama.
Legend says that Lord Hanuman stopped here during his search for Sanjivani Plant, an herb that required curing Laxman who was fatally wounded during the battle in Lanka. The temple is connected with a ropeway and it houses a tall figurine of Lord Hanuman with 108 feet in height. I was left with spellbinding experience and capitulate myself to the divine place. The temple is easily and excitingly accessible from the Ridge that crosses near Christ Church. I loved to see the monkeys wandering around the temple but not hurting anybody with their mischievous acts. I gave them sum bananas that I carried with me during my visit to the temple.
The temple is also approachable through dense forests and needs good stamina to climb. Ponies are also available there to carry pilgrims to the Jhaku Temple Shimla. It is the best ever seen point of attraction that Shimla embrace in its treasured casket. I came out of the temple to witness some of the more interesting places of Shimla.
