Hinduism - Where Is Mehndipur In India?

 


Between the towns of Agra and Jaipur is a village in Rajasthan's southern area.

The temple to the deity Balaji, who is said to be a version of the monkey god Hanuman, is the village's most famous attraction.

People who have been possessed by demonic spirits seek Balaji's help to be cured.

Sudhir Kakar, Shamans, Mystics, and Doctors, 1991, discusses the language of possession and exorcism in depth.
