Legend Behind GirjaBandh Hanuman Temple

इतिहासकारो की माने तो ये मंदिर १० हजार साल पुराना माना जाता हैं। कहा जाता है कि मंदिर का निर्माण “पृथ्वी देवजू ” नाम के राजा ने कराया था। राजा पृथ्वी देवजू हनुमान जी के बहुत बड़े भक्त थे औऱ उन्होंने कई सालों तक रतनपुर पर शासन किया था। माना जाता है कि वह कुष्ठ रोग से पीड़ित थे।

It is said that this temple is more that 10,000 years old and was established by the king named “Prithvi Devju”. King Prithvi Devju was a great devotee of Hanuman and he ruled Ratanpur for many years. He is believed to have suffered from leprosy.

इस मंदिर जुड़ी एकक पौराणिक कथा है एक रात देवजू राजा के सपने में भगवान ने दर्शन दिए और कहा की यहाँ मंदिर बनाओ जब मंदिर का निर्माण पूरा होने वाला था तब भगवान ने फिर दरसन दिए और कहा की महामाया कुंड से मूर्ति निकाल कर मंदिर में स्थापित करो ।

There is a mythology related to this temple. One night, in the dream of Devju Raja, God appeared and said that build the temple , when the construction of the temple was about to be completed, then the Lord again gave Darsan and said to remove the idol from Mahamaya Kund and install it in the temple.

राजा ने प्रभु के आगया का पालन किया जब प्रभु की मूर्ति निकाली तो वह बहुत आश्चर्य में पढ़ गए की हनुमान जी ये दिवय मूर्ति स्त्री रूप में थी फिर महामाया कुंड से निकली मूर्ति को पूरे विधि विधान से मंदिर में स्थापित किया गया। मूर्ति स्थापना के बाद राजा की बीमारी पूरी तरह से ठीक हो गई।

The king obeyed . But, when he took out the idol of the Lord, he was in great surprise that the divine idol of Lord Hanuman was in female form. After the idol installation, the king’s illness was completely cured.
