Dudhadhari Hanuman Temple in Raipur – Sankata Mochan Hanuman Mandir at Raipur in Chhattisgarh

Dudhadhari Hanuman Temple is located in front of the Balaji Mandir at Dudhadhari Ashram in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. Sankata Mochan Hanuman Mandir is unique as Hanuman murti is seen with a turned face. The murti worshipped in the temple originally belonged to Sant Dudhadhari.

Legend has it that Dudhadhari Hanuman Temple existed before the Balaji Mandir. Few days after Balaji temple was constructed a miracle happened.

Hanuman who is an ardent devotee of Bhagavan Sri Ram turned his face to see Sri Balaji and the body remained in the same way. The doors of the temple are facing towards the Balaji Mandir because a devotee can get glimpse of the face of Hanuman only from here. The stairs to approach the shrine are from north.

Thousands of devotes visit the Dudhadhari Ashram and the Sankata Mochan Hanuman Mandir daily.
