Maruti Mandir, Shirdi

4.6
#5 of 19 in Things to do in Shirdi
One of the oldest temples in Shirdi, Maruti Mandir is one of only three existing shrines in which Lord Hanuman--the monkey god and the patron deity of wrestlers--is depicted in a reclining posture. A circular railing encloses the shrine that, oddly enough, faces south instead of west or east. Notice the dumbbells in the corner, which young men use to exercise their strength. Put Maruti Mandir and other Shirdi attractions into our Shirdi attractions site , and watch your holiday take shape.
