4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Hang out with sacred monkeys at Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple, a small two story yellow brick structure and a major pilgrimage spot in Varanasi known as The Monkey Temple. Situated by the River Assi, this is one of the three most important temples in the city, connected with Goswami Tulsidas, a famous 16th century poet who had a vision of Lord Hanuman who inspired him to write a long poet about Lord Rama. Reconstructed early in the 20th century by the independence fighter Madan Mohan Malaviya, the temple has a resident population of monkeys. Try besan ladoo, a festivity sweet, which you can also take home as a souvenir.

  • A good place to worship. Not so crowded while we visiting so darsan was very easy and worship is not considered as business here unlike other temples in varanasi 
  • One of the most famous hanuman temple in the country but was disappointed with the 'prasad' sold inside the temple premises. It was just sugar rolled in ghee. 10 years back the quality of sankat mochan temple prasad was great. People used to talk about it But it needs overlook. It is surprising how the quality went down when it is sold inside the premises. The trust must look into this. Jai Hanuman !!
  • This is very attractive temple for those people's who are bhakt of SRI RAM AND HANUMAN
  • The moment we step in the temple, a feeling of spirituality is evoked. This temple is built by Madan Mohan Malviya as a place where Saint Tulsidas had a glimpse of Lord Hanumana.
  • Jai Shri Raam
  • What a Sacred place for all of us to bow before the Bajarang Bali.If you come here once in your life, you think something was missing that I got to come at This place. Jay BajRang Bali
