The Jakhoo or Jakhu temple in Shimla is an ancient temple visited by several Hindu devotees all year round. Dedicated to the monkey God Hanuman, the temple hosts a big festival on Dushera every year. It is said that Lord Hanuman rested at this spot when he was looking for the sanjeevani booti to save Laxman’s life. It takes 30 minutes to hike up the ridge where the temple is located. There are several monkeys on the route and it is advised that you carry a walking stick to keep them at bay.
