Karmanghat Hanuman Temple in Hyderabad

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple Hyderabad
Karmanghat Hanuman Temple is located at Karmanghat, closer to Sagar Ring Road, it is a marvellous temple of Lord Hanuman. It is also said to be one of the oldest temples in the city.


Karmanghat Hanuman Temple was built in 11th century A.D (approximately 1143).

When a Kakatiya king went hunting and was resting under a tree, he heard the chanting of Lord Rama's name. Wondering who it was in the middle of a terrible forest, he discovered a stone vigraha of Lord Hanuman, in seated posture and the voice coming from the vigraha. Having paid his respects, he returned to his capital, and that night, Lord appeared in his dream and asked him to construct a temple.

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple
was built immediately and successive kings ruled it well. About 400 years later, Aurangzeb sent out his armies to all corners of the country to wipe out hindus and hindu temples. At this temple, the army couldnt even step close to the compound wall. When the general reported this to Aurangzeb, he himself went with a crow bar to break down the temple. At the threshold of the temple, he heard a deafening roar rumblning like thunder, and the crowbar slipped from his hands as he was shaking in fear. Then he heard a voice in the heavens "Mandir todna hai rajan, to karo man ghat" ("if u want to break down the temple king, then make ur heart stronger") which is why the place got the name kar-man-ghat. And to this day, Lord Anjaneya sits peacefully meditating and blessing devotees, as Dhyana Anjanyea Swamy.

Karmanghat Hanuman Temple has eight-and-half centuries-old historical temple which has withstood not only Mughal emperor Aurangazeb's vain bid to pull it down but also the vagaries of nature has now fallen into the clutches of land sharks. The Dhyananjaneya temple located at Karmanghat village in Saroornagar mandal near Hyderabad was built by Kakatiya ruler Prataparudra II in 1143 AD. It was then in the midst of a thick forest and the temple was built near a village called Lakshmigudem, now known as Karmanghat village. The village got its name following Aurangazeb's attack on the temple in the 17th century. It is said that when Aurangazeb and his army annexed Golconda and began destroying everything in their path, that his soldiers came to the Dhyananjaneya temple. The army could not proceed their course of action due to divine intervention. "Aurangazeb himself came to the temple and heard a loud voice which said, hey Rajan Mandir Todna hai to pehle tum karo man ghat' (if you want to break the temple, strengthen your heart first)," says a leaflet published by the authorities about the shrine. As the years passed, the 'Karo Man Ghat' changed to Karmanghat and the area came to be known as Karmanghat. The temple is now spread over 3 acres. It also has a one-acre pond.
