The Birth Place of Hanumana

Situated about 20 kms from Nashik, the scenic village of Anjaneri is popularly known as the birthplace of Lord Hanuman. It is named after Hanuman’s mother ‘Anjani’ and is a place of great divinity and mythological significance. Anjaneri also happens to be a fantastic trekking spot, with the trail leading up to the summit punctuated by caves, waterfalls, healing lakes and of course, a spectacular view. Perched atop this hill is a magnificent temple dedicated to Anjani Mata that truly is a sight to behold.
