Do walk and climb up to the temple. It's a good fitness test ! Big Hanumanji statue is worth seeing.

Nice place with option of going by car aur a tough walk from mall Road. Very tall Hanuman statue which is visible from almost all places of Shimla. While taking stairs to temple beware of monkeys, avoid specs prasad etc. Nice and calm temple.

It is a good steep drive into the jakhu temple. If you are driving the car please be extra careful. You can also rent a cab down the hill. They will charge Rs 320. An experienced driver is better all the time

This temple is at the top of the hill. The best way to reach the Temple is by on foot from Ridge via jungle, and best to visit in Rainy season. Be careful from monkeys.
