Shri Bhadra Maruti Temple @ Khuldabad (Maharashtra)


Shri Bhadra Maruti Temple @ Khultabad (Maharashtra)

Shri Bhadra Maruti Temple: 

This temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Anjaneya (Hanuman Ji or Bajrang Bali). Its main attraction is its sleeping posture. In India, only three places Anjaneya is being worshiped in sleeping position. The second one is in Prayag Raj near Sangam (Uttar Pradesh) and the third temple is in Jam Sawali (Madhya Pradesh). 

In earlier days, Khuldabad was known as Bhadravati where a  king named Bhadrasena used to rule there. He was a devotee of Lord Rama and used to sing for him. One day while he was singing, Lord Hanuman was also present and he got mesmerized by his song and maintained Bhawa Samadhi (Sleeping posture). After noticing this, King requested Lord Hanuman to be there forever and from that day, Lord Hanuman is being worshiped in this posture.

This is one of the famous tourist destinations near Aurangabad in Maharashtra.
