The city of Alwar that is renowned the world over for
being home to the famous Sariska National Park also
attracts visitors to its century old temples. In fact,
most of the temples in Alwar are ideally situated within
the large area of the national park and are largely
visited by tourists en route to Sariska. These ancient
temples of Alwar are historically significant and speak
of rather fascinating legends.
The most famous and widely visited among all the temples
in Alwar is the Hanuman Temple that lies about 11 km
from the entrance of Sariska National Park. The temple
houses a striking giant idol of Lord Hanuman in a reclined
position and dates back to the Mahabharata days. Nearly
hundreds of monkeys and langoors can be seen running
all over the place near Hanuman Temple (they are usually
harmless unless provoked).
Another famous temple in Alwar is the Bhartrihari Temple
that is also located in the vicinity of Sariska wildlife
sanctuary. Thousands of devotees across the country
throng at the temple to receive the divine healing touch
of Bhartrihari Baba who is believed to fulfill all unmet
desires. The ancient ruins of Neelkanth Temples that
date back to as early as 6th century are also worth
a visit in Alwar. Particularly striking is the temple
of Lord Shiva here.
