Kale Hanuman Ji History
Kale Hanuman Ji Jaipur History is very interesting. Hanuman ji was the son of Pawan Dev and a disciple of Surya Dev. His education was completed at the place of Surya Dev. The mystery of Hanuman ji’s dark complexion begins from the time when Hanuman ji’s education was over and Hanuman ji was about to return from Suryalok to his home in Anjan Pradesh.
When Hanuman ji asked Surya Dev that Gurudev what should I give you in Guru Dakshina. Then Surya Dev said to Hanuman ji that Maruti (nickname of Hanuman ji) my son Shani does not speak well to me. If you end this separation between us and establish a relationship of unity, then I will accept that as your Guru-Dakshina.
After listening to Sun God, Hanuman ji left there in search of Shani Dev. After a lot of effort, at last, Hanuman ji met Shani Dev. Hanuman ji explained to Shani Dev to live together with his father Surya Dev, but Shani Dev was not getting ready to understand Hanuman ji’s words.
The matter went so far that a war started between them. During the war, the entire body of Hanuman ji became black due to the fire of the angry Shani Dev. Despite having a black body, Hanuman ji managed to establish a relationship of unity between Shani Dev and Surya Dev.
Pleased with this work of Hanuman ji, Shani Dev bowed down in front of Hanuman ji and said, ‘ I am very happy to see your devotion to Guru. I declare that the wishes of my devotees will not be fulfilled on Saturday unless they worship you after worshiping me.’ Shani Dev also said that whoever worships you on Saturday, his My squint above will have no effect. Not only this, according to the wish of Shani Maharaj, Hanuman ji also wore black color. That’s why there is a lot of crowd in the temple of Kale Hanuman ji on Saturday instead of Tuesday.
