"Going further up, we have to halt at an open air mandir of Pavanasuta
Hanuman. Jutting out over the wide open space, there greets us a soul - lifting
image of Hanuman, carved on a big stone. The humanist temple authorities have
built many topless mandapas for several divinities all along the way on both
ghat road and foot-path with arrangements for sitting and relaxing, in addition
to praying for taking up further tiresome trekking.
There are several such mandapas through out the footpath. They not only serve as
resting places, but generate bhakti instincts, since every tired body genuinely
seeks their blessings. for easeful trekking. Are the adorable gods stony
hearted? Keeping this in view, many such mandirs were built at several points by
the far-sighted donors in the past, and the refined administrators added a few
more with sitting facilities. Moreover, at these spots, the enterprising
business men are selling soft drinks and snacks. So treading to the Sannidhi is
not as difficult as thought of by the Lotus-Eaters.
