According to the story, the temple came into being when Lord Hanuman was on his way to the Himalayas in search of the medicinal herb Sanjeevani, which would save Lakshman’s (Lord Ram’s younger brother) life. He was on his way to Dronagiri (the mountain where the herb would be found), but he didn’t know what it looked like. During his flight, he spotted a sage meditating on the Jakhoo hill.  Hanuman stopped there to ask the sage about the herb. Because he stepped on to the mountain, a temple was formed.
