This day is celebrated in the name of Hanuman Jayanti all over the country. It is said that many kinds of sufferings are removed by taking his name only. In this way, there are many famous temples all over Rajasthan where many people’s wishes and diseases are overcome.

People come to this temple to get rid of the black shadow and phantom barrier. Here, to free the spirit from the body, he is punished with harsh punishments. Seeing this, people also get some chilly chills on their spines.
Attached to the temple is a small hole, on the left side of the chest of Mehndipur Balaji from which the water flows. In this temple three Gods reside, one is Balaji himself, second is Pretaraj and third is Bhairav who is called Captain.
In the Balaji temple, Balaji is offered laddus, Pretaraj with rice, and lord Bhairav with urad prasad. It is said that as soon as Prasad’s laddoo is eaten, the ghost inside the person suffering from the phantom barrier starts splashing and starts doing strange things.
There are some strict rules for those who visit Mehandipur Bala Ji. Consumption of garlic, onion, egg, meat, alcohol has to be stopped at least one week before coming here.
Usually, after worshipping the Lord in the temple, people come home with prasad and other eatables, but never ever should forget the fact that from the Mehandipur Balaji temple, they may only bring Prasad home and should not take other eatables outside that place. By doing this, you can be haunted. The offerings offered here are called Darkhavast and application.
If you go to Balaji, then you should join the Aarti in the morning and evening and take the aarti. This helps in the liberating of the diseases and protects your body against upper vertigo.
Let’s know the history of this temple and its beliefs …
It is said that this temple is about 1 thousand years old. Also, in a very huge rock here, the figure of Hanuman ji emerged on its own. This figure is considered to be the form of Hanuman ji.
The temple of Balaji is so divine to get rid of the power of the evil spirits and is considered to be a very powerful temple of Hanuman ji. When the Aarti takes place in the temple in the evening, people suffering from ghosts can be seen battling easily here.
It is said that there was a thick forest in Mehandipur and wild animals were inhabited all around that place. At the same time, the terror of thieves and bandits also spread in the village around the temple. Baba Mahant ji, ancestor of the temple saw a dream one day and amidst the dream, he woke up in his sleep.
At this stage, Baba saw that thousands of lamps are burning from there and Balaji Maharaj, Shri Pretaraj Sarkar, Shri Bhairav Baba were coming with the army of elephants and horses. He bowed to all the gods and saw the whole scene standing there. The path through which the army came also went ahead. After all this, he walked towards his home and tried to sleep, but he kept thinking about the dream again and again.
After some time he became sleepy. When he fall asleep, he also saw a huge temple with those three idols and an invisible voice started coming in his ears, someone was telling him, son, get up and take the burden of my service, and worship me.
I will do well for Kalyug. Gosai Ji Maharaj did not pay attention to it. Later Balaji Maharaj himself appeared and said that establish me here and worship. . As soon as he woke up from that dream, the idol came out from there.
After this, Maharaj told the people nearby about his dream. Some people established a small temple there and also made arrangements for enjoyment, due to the miracles started happening there.
Some hypocrites and evil people considered it a hypocrisy (as usual, maybe they were secularists ). Baba also made the king aware of the whole incident. The king too felt some art, and the king refused to believe it. Due to this, the idols went back into the ground and became invisible. The king excavated the place, but idols were not found. After this, the king considered it a miracle and apologized to Baba.
This made all people recognize the power and apologized to him. The idols then reappeared after considering the apologies of the people and the king.
There is a hidden secret of the temple that a continuous stream flows continuously from the hole near Balaji’s heart, this holy water is splashed at the devotees and it is considered to be the blessing of Balaji.
Assuming the burden of worship the king ordered and built a huge temple of Balaji Maharaj. Mahant Ganeshpuri Ji Maharaj served Balaji till old age. Later he took samadhi by Balaji’s orders and prayed to Balaji at the last moment, May my descendants worship you further.
Since the establishment of the temple, only Maharaj’s family is serving. So far, 11 mahants have served here since 1000 years.
3.) The Bhangarh Gopinath temple
A desolate fort over time, but its walls are filled with history, beliefs, and rumors all of which are scattered. This fort changes its color in every season. Its desolation scares in the scorching summer, and so after bathing in the raindrops, it covers the entire land with its sheet of greenery.
The reason for the strange thrill of seeing these desolate ruins scattered in the lap of Aravalli is probably because it is considered a haunted city based on prevailing beliefs.
On one side, completely surrounded by hills and desolate for miles, this ancient city may be considered cursed, but in the desolation of its ruins, the mesmerizing beauty dwells. The reason for this hypnosis may be the greenness of the thousands of Kevda trees(Pandanus tectorius) and the smell emanating from them among the demolished buildings. Because when the strong wind blows, the smell of kevda in the whole atmosphere makes the atmosphere more mysterious.
The terraces from the two-storey jeweler market located right in the middle of this fractal city have departed its time, but it can be easily felt that when this market was buzzing with its full aura, exactly how would it be seen like? Just beyond my imagination.
The name of this desolate immersed in the whirlpool of legends is ‘Bhangarh of ghosts‘ for those living nearby. It has been hundreds of years, hardly anyone could dare to stay overnight in Bhangarh. It is said that once an Englishman stayed with one of his forest workers to know the reality of this stronghold at night and both met dead in the morning. Since then, the government banned the stay of anyone in Bhangarh at night by putting a notice board.
After going through the history, it is known that the capital of Bhangarh was settled with the total of nineteen villages. In 1573, the king of Amer Bhagwant Das built the fort here and made his son Madho Singh, who was the younger brother of Navratna Mansingh of Mughal Emperor Akbar, with the consent of Akbar. In this, the twelve villages were won by fighting Meenas.
It is said that Madhosingh participated in the battle of Haldi valley on behalf of Akbar, in which he was also injured. Madho Singh died in a battle of 1630. Madho Singh’s son Chhatrasinh was also killed later in the war with the Mughals along with his two sons Bhimsingh and Anand Singh.
After this, his son Ajab Singh started living there by building the fort of Ajabgarh. It is said that in the famine of 1783, Bhangarh was completely destroyed.
