Bhadra Maruti, Aurangabad

4.0
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Aurangabad
Admire mosaic ceilings, floral motifs and hymns written all over the interior of Bhadra Maruti, a tall ornate Hindu temple made of white marble. Built in the 1960s as the house of a unique and old and intensely orange-colored image of Lord Hanuman, this is one of the three temples in which you can see Hanuman in a sleeping or reclining position. The legend has it that Hanuman was entranced having heard a devotional song sung by King Bhadra dedicated to Lord Rama. Devotees flock here to seek the blessing and the place gets crowded over weekends. Try some peda sweets sold around the temple.

    The temple is located near the main city and has a great campus. All the devotees must visit this place once.  more »

    Nearby place when visiting aurangabad. Not very well kept maybe due to construction. Simple statue where you can go anytime and offer your prayers.  more »

    This is a very good temple of Lord Hanuman. There is a different statue of Hamuman ji on bed. The temple is located on the way to ellora so u can visit this temple while coming back.  more »
