Ghat ke Balaji temple is located mid way between Galta temple and Sisodia Rani Ka Bagh / garden,off Agra Highway near Ghat ki Guni. It’s hardly fifteen to twenty minutes drive from the Jaipur city center.
The temple is dedicated to the Lord Hanuman . Even though temple dates back to few centuries, it has faded from the list of popular temples of Jaipur. While Khole ke hanuman ji temple has gained importance steadily, over the years, it’s the other way around for the Ghat ke Balaji temple.
This temple was patronized by the Royal family of Jaipur and many important royal ceremonies have been performed here in past. It still has a large public following. Ghat ke Balaji temple hosts many sawamanis – offering/prasaad which are popular with the temples dedicated to the Lord Hanuman. This temple is maintained & managed by the Galta Peeth based at Galta, Jaipur
Ghat Ke Balaji temple has an impressive architectural presence,which is in line with the temple built during its time. No other temple, dedicated to the Lord Hanuman in Jaipur can rival its grandeur & architecture. Although fair amount of renovation has taken place over the years, the temple still maintains its original character. The paintings in the main sanctum are unique although they are in a need of an urgent care & attention. Do visit, if you are visiting Galta / Monkey Temple or Sisodia Rani Garden.
