A Gigantic Hanumanji in Sleeping Position - Jamsavli

Jam Savli Hanuman temple is one the oldest temple in the history of the Chhindwara. The temple is famous for the miracles. It is located 110 km away from the town in Sausar. It is too much close to the border of the Maharasgtra state. The Lord Hanuman in the temple is in the resting position which is very rare in India. It is also believed that no one may visit the Hanuman temple until he or she is called by the Lord. Lord Hanuman here is considered Bal Bramhachari. In order to maintain the sainthood of the temple, the women are allowed to address the Lord from a particular distance while the men are allowed to go little close to the Idol.
