Salasar Balaji

Shri Salasar Balaji Temple in Salasar, Rajasthan is a Siddhpeeth Shri Hanuman Ji Temple. This is the place where Lord Hanumanji is worshipped in a different form or idol than the regular form we know. At this place, Hanuman ji or Bala Ji is a prayed in a Human Face Idol with mustaches and beard. This is a place proven for the past centuries to have been fulfilling the wishes of millions of pilgrimage from around different parts of Rajasthan and Western India and Eastern Pakistan (Formerly India).

The idol is said to be retrieved by a Jaat farmer from one of the villages of Rajasthan called Ambota. The idol was found by that Jaat farmer in his farm and then forwarded by the Thakur of Asota to Pandit Mohandas Maharaj in Salasar.

The temple area is electrifying almost everyday and experiences crowds beyond normal at festivals. The market is congested with the temple walls joint with other private properties of others. A double lane street runs all the way to the other side of entry passing from in front of the temple with private residence and shops on either side. These shops are mainly, hotels, Prasad and gifts and spices shops. The temple is built in around 3000-4000 square meter area (this is only a visual estimate) which is congested within to accommodate a large pilgrimage. Though the general construction of the Salasar Balaji Temple is done with regular bricks and cement and marble, however within the central area, more and more are, specially the walls and ceiling is getting covered up with embossed silver plates of Shri Hanuman figures.
