The temple was established on Aso Vad Panchme

In Vikram Sawant 1905, on the day of Aso Vad Pancham, the idol of Hanumanji Maharaj was consecrated in Salangpur and in course of time a very beautiful temple was built and the idol of Hanumanji was duly installed in it.

Gopalananda Swami, a saint of Swaminarayan Bhagwan, established it

Hanumanji Maharaj was established by Gopalananda Swami, a senior saint of Swaminarayan Bhagwan, at Salangpur Dham, where millions of people suffer and suffer. There is a story that the economic condition of Wagha Khachar in the court of Salangpur was poor and through his courtyard saints used to go to see Lord Gadha Swaminarayan but due to poor economic condition Wagha Khachar could not serve the saints and were distressed. At such a time, Gopalananda Swami told him that I am establishing you Pratapi Hanuman ji where crores of people from all over the country will come to get rid of their ailments. You should serve the saints and devotees with the income generated on that occasion.

Saying this, he made a beautiful picture with his own hands and asked the sculptor to make a very beautiful idol for the craftsman according to this picture. In the picture he made, Hanuman ji crushed Lord Shani under his feet, depicting the same event, the idol is present in the Salangpur temple today. Gopalananda Swami established Hanumanji and placed the miraculous rod whose touch even today relieves crores of people from their confusion and Aadhi Vyadhi Upadhi and gets mental peace and the rod revered by Gopalananda Swami is also kept here for darshan.
