Shri Hanuman Mandir, Sarangpur
Hanumanji Maharaj at Sarangpur, is famed around the world for expelling spirits and Ghosts from people plagued with such problems. This was due to the blessing of Gopalanand Swami to Vagha Khachar, who invoked Hanumanji with his wand, to be ever present in the idol to drive out such evils. The kind Swami helped Vagha Khachar with such blessing as he readily served saints and devotees offering them hospitality. As a result his income had dwindled. Swami therefore decided to help him by installing the idol of Hanuman, which provided a strong source of income, which facilitated him to continue to render service to saints and devotees. Later on he dedicated the income permanently to the temple at Gadhpur. This service continues today as hundreds comes to Sarangpur at the feet of Hanumanji Maharaj to be rid of such problems.
Shri Hanuman Mandir, Sarangpur is a Hindu temple located in Sarangpur, Gujarat and comes under the Vadtal Gadi of the Swaminarayan Sampraday.
