The yardage in the second round designed over a long sloping glade, the course is regarded as one of the most challenging ones in the country.

A little History
As per the epic Ramayana Lord Hanuman rested at Jakhu for a while when he was on his way to fetch Sanjeevni booti that was required to treat lord Lakshman who was put senseless by Meghnath’s arrows. While lord Hanuman rested here he met sage Yaaku who provided him vital information on sanjeevni booti . On Yaaku’s request lord Hanuman promised to meet him on his way back. Lord Hanuman could not keep his promise but later he showed up and told why he could not come . After he disappeared an idol appeared by itself and Yaaku then constructed the Jakhu temple in remembrance of lord Hanuman. The idol has still remained intact.
How to reach
The temple is at a distance of 1.3 miles towards east from historical ridge ground. The devotees can cover a hill trek on foot or can hire a taxi (taxi is included in tour package).
