  • Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir - Pakistan

    Karachi Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir in Pakistan,
    1500 years old Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir located
    at Soldier Bazaar in Karachi is one of the oldest
    Hindu temples in Pakistan. The temple holds special
    significance for Hindus as it is the only shrine
    in the world which has a “natural statue” of Hanuman
    that is not man-made.

    The blue and white 8 feet statue was found many centuries
    ago at the place where the temple now stands; it bears
    all five aspects of Hanuman : Narasimha, Adivaraha,
    Hayagriva, Hanuman and Garuda.It is believed that such
    naturally-formed idols of deities possess exceptional power
    and appear to bless worshipers.

    carved yellow stone structure in the middle of the temple
    premises. This temple’s renovation work has started in 2012
    and to preserve the look of the temple, its original yellow
    stones are being used to rebuild the arched walls.

    The small front porch has pillars of carved yellow stone
    on either side with a black and white marble floor,
    a wide passage for clockwise circumambulation
    (parikrama / pradakshina) runs around it.It is believed
    that completion of 108 rounds around the chambers,
    cleanses all pain, evil and adversity, making this temple
    a citadel of healing for all castes and creed. India.
    Multiple communities like Maharashtrians, Sindhis,
    Balochis visit this temple.
