about salasar balaji temple

The primary deity worshipped at Salasar Balaji Temple is Lord Hanuman, however the idol is quite different than the usual idols of Hanuman seen in other temples across the country. The Balaji idol has a more round face with a beard and moustache. This is one of the most religious places in the state of Rajasthan and the number of devotees visiting here reaches to about a million each day.

History

The temple was built in the year 1754. Mohandas Maharaj the founder of the temple is said to have been inspired by a strange dream where he saw Lord Balaji. Initially this was a mud-stone temple, but was later converted into a concrete temple by Sikar Jagirdar  Rao Devi Singh. Later, the temple was renovated to take its present shape of a large temple complex.

Architecture

One can see the extensive use of white marble throughout the temple premises. The prayer hall and the inner shrine are covered with art works done in gold and silver. The doorway to the inner shrine as well as the utensils used in rituals are all made of silver. The doorway to the main entrance has intricate carvings done on white marble.

Rituals


One of the rituals at this temple is to tie a sacred red thread around a coconut. This is believed to fulfill all wishes asked with a pure heart. Devotees also make food offerings to the lord that weigh 50kg. This particular practice is called 'Savamani' where 'Sava' means one and a quarter and 'Maund' is a unit of mass equaling 40kg. Usually delicacies like Dal bati churma, peda and laddus are chosen for Savamani.

The festival of Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated in a big way here at  Salasar Balaji Temple. The fairs held during the Ashwin Shukla Chaturdashi and Poornima (full moon) as well as Bhadra Shukla Chaturdashi and Poornima also attract huge crowds.
