Lord Shri Ram’s holy birthplace, Ayodhya, has a saying ‘If there is Ram, there will be Hanuman and if there is Hanuman, there will be Ram’. Ayodhya is home to the world-famous temple of Bajrang Bali, ‘Hanuman Garhi’. No one can get the darshan of Lord Shri Ram without the permission of Hanumanji, who is regarded as the protector of Ayodhya. What about the Hanuman Garhi temple, which is located at the Ramnagri Ayodhya Ram Nagri?
Located in the abode of Shri Ram
Lord Ram’s hometown is Ayodhya Puri. Every atom here is a part of Shri Ram. Moreover, the dirt here is purer than the feet of Shri Ram. Ayodhya is where Shri Ram’s pastimes have taken place. The Lord, his brothers, and his consort Jagaknandini Sita live in this abode.
Hanuman, Lord Shri Ram’s highest devotee, must now be in the same place. The Hanuman Garhi temple in Ayodhya is said to be Hanumanji’s permanent home.
The home of Hanumanji
‘Hanumangarhi’ is the name given to Ayodhya’s most notable Shri Hanuman temple. On a rocky outcropping, this temple is perched. According to folklore, Hanuman Ji was given this house to reside in, and therefore it is also known as his house. Hanumanji, the devotee of Lord Ram, is also believed to be a devotee of this temple, and devotees who visit Ayodhya are required to take the darshan of Hanumanji first.
The temple’s history goes back a long way
Shankar Das said that the Hanuman Garhi temple’s history stretches back to the time when Siraj-ud-Daula ruled India. A fatal sickness had befallen Nawab Siraj-ud-daula, and he needed to die. The Nawab visited Baba Abhay Ramdas Ji in the tamarind orchard, where he received healing prayers from Baba Abhay Ramdas Ji. This temple was created as a result of that.
Hanuman can be found wherever Shri Ram’s hymns are sung
When Lord Shri Ram returned to Ayodhya after conquering Lanka, Hanuman Ji was also there, according to the temple’s belief. Hanumanji declined to accompany Lord Shri Ram as he returned to Gaulok following the completion of his Leela. That’s the only thing Hanumanji wanted to do. He declared that he would stop and pray to Shri Ram everywhere he heard one of his hymns.
The Practice of Writing to God Directly
On the subject of Hanuman Garhi, it is said that no waking idol like this temple of Bajrang Bali Hanumanji exists in the country at all. The court of Shri Ram is situated behind the shrine of Shri Hanuman. Mahant Gauri Shankar Das said that the idol put in the temple is so divine that if any mistake is done by the priest in the service, then Lord Hanuman himself makes the priest recognise his fault within two hours of the service being completed.
In this magnificent temple, there is also a long-standing practice of communicating with God. Letters from Lord Hanuman instruct the priests on a variety of topics.
Hanuman is the lord of Kaliyuga
During the summer, the temple’s doors open at 5 am and close at 10 pm, while in the winter, the doors open at 6 am. Devotees flock to the temple year-round, no matter what the weather may be like. Hanumangarhi attracts a huge number of pilgrims on Tuesdays. It is widely held among Hanuman Ji devotees that he is the Kali Yuga’s monarch and always guards Ayodhya.
In Ayodhya, he is revered as a god. As a result, before beginning any major project in Ayodhya, everybody involved must first obtain approval from Bajrang Bali.
The temple has a triumph pillar
In the sanctuary of Baba Hanuman’s Garhi, Hanuman Garhi, worshipers climb about 70 steps to get here. Every day, the name of Ram is written on the leaves of Tulsi and Hanumanji is adorned with jewels and pearls in the temple. An additional pillar is found in the temple that is linked to Treta Yuga, and its beliefs are likewise linked to this time period. According to Mahant Gauri Shankar Das, a Victory Pillar may also be seen in this location.
It was Hanuman Ji who had brought this pillar after the Lankan victory and had it installed here. At Bajrang Bali, people pray to Bajrang Bali for their desires to come true.
The temple’s devotees claim that their prayers are answered when they visit. Offering a crimson chola to Hanuman Ji in this place is also believed to pacify the evil planets and provide good fortune to the devotee.
