The temple shrine is dedicated to Lord Hanuman and Lord Hanuman is worshipped as a human here. Since Manipur is pretty well connected with all other parts of the country, it doesn’t take much hassle to reach the temple at all. Shri Hanuman Thakur Temple can easily be reached after landing in Manipur by taking a cab or a taxi. The Shri Hanuman Thakur Temple brings back memories of the dispersion of the Ramanandi cult of Hinduism in the state of Manipur. After the death of Garib Niwaj, the Ramanandi cult also didn’t last long in Manipur. The Thakur Temple, thus acts as a monumental evidence as far as the religious history of Manipur is concerned.
Hanuman Jayanti is a major festival celebrated here and attracts the large number of hanuman devotees.
