A short flight of stairs lead to a rectangular temple hosting the
image of Hanuman. The platform on which the image sits has four
fancy pillars. The roof has an oval base on which the round
sculpture of the temple rests, ending in a pointed shikhara. True
to Hanuman's iconographic depictions he sits kneeling on one leg:
one hand is raised in a gesture of blessing and the other holding
clappers. He wears a short loin cloth, the ends of the shoulder
cloth flowing in both directions. He is shown wearing a small
crown and a long garland in his neck.
The worship of Hanuman is extremely beneficial. He is the giver
of worldly gains and spiritual achievements.
