COVID-19 Status: The Temple and Mount Madonna Center are currently CLOSED.

Welcome to Sankaṭ Mochan Hanumān Temple

Sankaṭ Mochan Hanumān Temple serves all people who seek a place of devotion, contemplation, and peace.

Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking the Monterey Bay in central California, the Temple rests in the heart of Mount Madonna Center — a Yoga community that includes a retreat and seminar facility, Mount Madonna School (PK-12th grade), Mount Madonna Institute, and the office of Sri Ram Foundation. All were inspired by the example of Master Yogi and silent monk, Sri Baba Hari Dass.

About Us

The mountaintop location provides a classic archetypal setting for a Hanumān Temple. It is presented in the traditional style of temples in North India — a place where Babaji lived and helped build a number of similar Hanumān Temples.
