Mehandipur Balaji Temple is famous for ritualistic healing and exorcism of evil spirits. Sounds crazy? or you already know about it. If it is real or not, I tried to explain some interesting facts about the temple of Lord Hanuman.
MEHANDIPUR BALAJI TEMPLE: INTRODUCTION
The temple is a Hindu temple, situated in Dausa district of Rajasthan. It is a popular spot for curing the people possessed with evil spirits or ghosts!
Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, this temple attracts thousands of devotees every day especially to get an affected person treated.
In 2013, an international team of scientists, scholars & psychiatrists from Germany, Netherlands, AIIMS, New Delhi and University of Delhi started a study to evaluate all aspects of treatment and rituals at the temple.
UNIQUENESS ABOUT THE TEMPLE
It is the only Hindu temple in India where exorcisms are still performed. People started believing in ghosts after visiting Mehandipur Balaji Temple, a place that is full of evil spirits.

DID YOU KNOW!
A visitor can easily see few evil spirits affected people doing bizarre activities such as slipping downstairs, and hurt their bodies in different ways and so on.
A REAL EXPERIENCE BY APARNA TRIPATHI
Do you ever think the spirits exist? I have never believed in the presence of evil spirits and ghosts in the past. One of my close relative got possessed and then we went to Mehandipur Balaji for 6 months where I saw the things I have never seen before.
The affected people were shouting badly. They were hurling their heads on the wall. Some were falling intentionally from top of the stairs while a few were holding heavy stones on their body. Some were drinking water from the gutter, tearing their clothes off and abusing God very rudely. A few of them were head standing all day long.
Experiencing all these horrifying scenes seemed like they were punishing themselves for a serious crime; a crime the person did not even know about. Very surprisingly, there were no scratches on their body.
I felt as if I was in some another world where nothing is in the hands of anyone. Whatever was happening is being operated by divine or any supernatural power. Eventually, I realized that there is a lot in the hands of human beings but not everything. The power that directs the world is paramount.

The temple is situated in Todabhim village, Karauli district near Hindaun city of Rajasthan. The village is situated at the border of two districts- Karauli and Dausa.

RECOMMENDED PLACES TO VISIT
If you are coming all way to Dausa for Balaji Temple, I would recommend to visit Bhangarh Fort, a mysterious fort and popularly one of the most haunted forts and places in India.
Plan your visit to the fort in such a way that you return and leave the fort before sunset (most important). To know the reason and my experience, I highly recommend to read my story.
If you are planning to make a visit to the famous Balaji Temple, I have a checklist for you -
- Start very early from Delhi, this way you can reach the temple by 10 or 11 AM.
- Alternatively, you can visit the Bhangarh fort in Alwar district and stay overnight in Alwar or Dausa and then visit the temple early morning to witness The Aarti Program.
Note About Balaji Temple Visit
Once you leave the Balaji temple, Do Not turn back! It's for your good and who knows an evil spirit is watching you closely !
"Respect the local culture, tradition and sanity of the temple. If you don't believe in spirits or exorcism rituals, keep it with yourself and do not attempt to show it off. For regular visitor, treat as if you are going to another Lord Hanuman Temple "
