  • Shri Hanuman ji has beautified the skyline across Pusa Road, with the Metro alongside!! Dilli Meri Jaan!!
  • famous temple in delhi loketed in karol bag
  • This place is an identity of Delhi after India Gate. Be it a movie or a serial based on delhi, one could easily find this scene. So, not only it's used as a symbol but also the place is awesome. Located just beside metro, one could easily reach out to this place.
  • Well worth seeing if for the novelty of such a huge Hanuman alone! A unique temple and entering through a demons mouth as it is being stood upon be Hanuman is quite amusing.
  • So big hanuman ji
