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 financial condition of Darbar Wagha Khachar of Salangpur was poor and the saints used to pass through his courtyard to have a darshan of Lord Gadha Swaminarayan.

But due to poor financial situation Wagah Khachar Saints could not serve the devotees 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.
