History of Naya Hanuman Mandir

According to some facts and priests, Naya Hanuman Mandir's history is linked with the Ramayan time story. When Mata Sita was leaving Ayodhya with Laxam and Hanuman Ji. They stayed for some time here near a park. Later, a temple was built in the same garden, in which the idol of Hanuman Ji was installed and that garden came to be called Hanuman Bari. Later, 14th-century Muslim rulers kept this place's name Islambaari.

During 1792 and 1802, the then Nawab of Awadh, Muhammad Ali Shah's Begum Rabia, had no children for many years. Then some people advised him to go to Baba of Islamabadi and pray to wish.

It is said that she went to Islamabad and wished for a child. His wish was fulfilled. There is a legend that when she was pregnant, she had a dream again in which she saw that the idol of Hanuman Ji is buried at the same place in Islamabadi and should be removed and set up in a temple.

As a result, after the birth of the child, Rabia Begum went there and the servants of Nawad dug the mound and the idol was taken out from below. Later, the Hanuman Ji idol was cleaned and placed on an elephant by a Nawabi order so that he could be built a temple near the large Imambara of Asaf-daulah.

When everyone was going through the road of the present Aliganj the elephant refused to proceed at the end of the road. The Mahavat made a million attempts, but the elephant remained unmoved.

In the end, Begum Sahiba took the Houda off her back, then he started walking, but later when the Houda was again placed on the elephant, he sat down again. Finally, when the sage of that fence said that 'Begam Sahiba Hanuman Ji does not want to go beyond Gomti River because that is the area of ​​Laxman Ji'.

Then Begum Sahiba installed the idol on the side of the road, near Gomti-shores, and built a temple on it. At that time Gomti River flows near Aliganj.
