When your average life becomes too burdensome and chaotic, solace is all that your heart would seek. And what better place to find solace and peace than in the comforting embrace of religion? Surrounded by captivating views and the enthralling beauty of nature, let these temples make your spirit soar and take you that much closer to divinity:

  • Pandupol and Hanuman Temple

    The region that is now famously known as Sariska was believed to have been a shelter to the Pandavas (from the Indian epic Mahabharata) while they were in exile. Pandupol is a reminder of this legend, housing the famous Hanuman Temple within its premises. The temple boasts of a larger-than-life idol of Lord Hanuman, in an unusual reclining position. This idol pays tribute to the legend where Bhima, one of the 5 Pandava brothers, lost a battle of wits to Hanuman. After this, he lived the rest of his life as a faithful devotee of the deity and this devotion is kept alive even today in the form of this temple. As though adding a greater air of Hanuman-devotion, the surrounding area is abundantly inhabited by langurs and monkeys, who the priests and devotees consider incarnations of Hanuman himself and are thus offered food out of respect.

  • Neelkanth Temples

    So you thought India could only have one Khajuraho? Pay a visit to these ancient temples, built between 6th and 13th Centuries and now in ruins, and you’ll be surprised at how vast and varied the cultural heritage of the country really is. Built in a similar style as the Chandelas built the Khajuraho temples, these are largely dedicated to the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva. But that’s not all. The entire complex offers a great insight into the confluence of Hinduism and Jainism, with a number of ancient Jain temples in the same vicinity. Intricate and delicately carved, the entire complex stands testimony to ancient wisdom that achieved such brilliant feats, especially in the field of architecture.

While the breeze swishes past tall trees, the serenity at these temples and the sheer devotion they evoke will make you wish you could stay here forever. A beautiful epiphany awaits!
