Peaceful place at the highest point of Shimla!

This is one of the must visit place in Shimla, which is situated at the highest point in Shimla. There is a huge orange color statue of Hanuman ji which can be seen from mall road or scandal point of shimla too.To reach inside the temple premise, you have to climb a steep road/stairs (100-150 meters approx) which may be bit uncomfortable for old people. Once you reach, you can sit & relax on the benches fixed near the statue or in the garden area beside the main temple.There is a playing area for kids too where swings & few other things are installed.There are lots of monkeys roaming there. So beware, hold your kids tight & keep your belongings inside bags, or you may face a good encounter with them.

Nice view

Jakhoo temple can be visited by any small car with experienced driver as roads are very narrow! Hanuman of 108 ft. is seen from Shimla's ridge, mall road.. It looks fantastic.! You must be careful from monkeys, they can snatch anything from your hand.

Jakhu temple is located on a hill top

jhaku temple is located on a hill top attached with the ridge ,the temple is huge attraction point as it is very long 3 km trek on the mountain. The trek tests the true stamina of the people. Cab services are available but best would be go by walk if you're young. Enjoy the serene beauty of landscape. Do no tease the Monkeys over the temple road they are very aggressive and they don't fear human's. The temple has huge statue which can be seen from entire Shimla city. Temple premises is huge and there is a sanctuary attached with this premises van vihar. Do this Trek it would be exhausting but totally worthy.

Awesome trip

It was a nice visit with tiresome trekking on approx 45 degrees inclination. Worth to go as the temple is maintained in a fantastic manner by the authorities. No dirty articles are there in the way. The road is clean and neat for the trekking. Need to carry the woolen clothes as there is too cold the place. Nice places to shoot in the way. Be aware of the monkeys as they can take anything from you.

Peaceful and pleasant

Take a breath here after 30minutes climb from the ridge. A big statue of Hanuman ji bless you when you reach here. Spend some time in the beautiful garden and enjoy a peaceful moment.
