Hanuman Temple

History of Hanuman Mandir :

The Hindu religion encompasses various deities for worshipping. Devotees put their faith in the diety they worship. For instance, Shree Samarth Ramdas was a devotee of Shree Ram. He made worshipping Shree Ram his sole life duty. Sant Eknath was ardently devoted to Shree Dattatreya.

Shree Ganesha being the primary diety is always worshipped prior to worshipping of any other diety.

During the road extension project of Sayani Road near Elphinston Road in Mumbai the workers of Municipal Corporation unearthed an idol of Shree Hanuman.

They placed it on the roadside and continued with their work.

Devotees coming to Shree Siddhivinayak Temple brought this event to the notice of the then head priest Shree Govind Phatak. He immediately brought the hanuman idol and built a compact temple for its. This was around 1952.

The renovation has given the Hanuman temple a new look and the present temple as it stands today.

From dawn to temple closing hours, the Hanuman Mandir has its own schedule of pujas, naivedya & aartis. Every Saturday Devotees are supplied with the traditional offerings of oil and Rui garland at a minimal cost on coupon basis, a day when many devotees flock to the temple.
