This is just about 3 to 4 Kms from Shimla Mall Road... An important Hill temple to visit..The presiding deity is Hanumanji. It is about 2455 metres height above sea level.
Jakhu Temple's " Hanuman Statue" is said to be the world's highest statue, appx. 108 fett height. You can also reach the temple by Jakhu Rope way...
There are lot of monkeys loitering here... they snatch everything including spects.. I was informed that they have been trained by the locals...

Best Place to visit in Shimla.The Jakhu Temple is located 2.5 km from the Christ Church at the Ridge.Jakhoo Hill which is also Shimla’s highest peak 108 feet tall Hanuman statue behind the deodar trees. It will take around 20-30 minutes to reach the temple by the trail. Alternatively, you can hire a taxi to the temple that will just take 5 minutes.The main temple complex has Lord Hanuman’s foot prints engraved on a marble (as believed by the devotees). Beware from monkeys , they snatch the stuff you are carrying. Avoiding carrying wallets, cameras, especially any eatables to the temple.
taxi takes 100 rs for 4 peoples, ropeway facilities also there but costly.
