About Sankat Mochan Temple

Situated amidst lush green trees and mountains on the Kalka-Shimla highway, Sankat Mochan Temple offers peace and calmness. In addition to Lord Hanuman, idols of Lord Ram, Shiva & Ganesh have been installed here as well. This temple hosts langar every Sunday for all the devotees. You can see a fantastic view of the Shimla city alongside Himalayan ranges from here.

Historical Context: Sankat Mochan Temple near Shimla was built and sanctified in June 1966. Baba Neeb Karori Ji Maharaj came to this place for soulful introspection during mid-twentieth century. He desired a Hanuman temple to be built here. The wish was fulfilled by the devotees of the Guru including the then governor of Himachal Pradesh.
