Mythology states that on Hanuman return journey from Sri Lanka, to bring a Sanjivani herb for Laxman, rested here, A statue of Hanuman is found in sleeping position here and worshipped.

The temple is remodeled and is beautifully carved with small carvings of Hanuman all over it.

This place is a must for all Hanuman Bhakts aka followers.
