Baba Neeb Karori's Legacy: Hanuman Setu Temple, Lucknow | Steve Jobs | Mark Zuckerberg

On one fine summer evening my uncle took me out to a temple that he is devoted to. He took me to Hanuman Setu Temple located on University road.

The temple is dedicated to Lord Hanuman which was built by a Hindu saint, Baba Neem Karori Maharaj. During 1960, a huge flood swept Lucknow city including a bridge that was built over the Gomti river. Everything was swooped away but the statue of Lord Hanuman, this event marked a day that solidified the beliefs of many devotees in Lord Hanuman and Baba Neeb Karori Maharaj.

Maharaj ji was a true devotee to Lord Hanuman and built many temples across North India. His mysticism reached across the world and attracted many devotees, including a young boy that visited him and was the founder the phenomenon that we call Apple Inc. today. Yes, Steve Jobs.

Even though Maharaj ji passed away in the 70s his legacy lived on. And when Jobs mentored young Mark Zuckerberg, formerly sent latter to the same Guru’s ashram in Kainchi near Nainital, India.

I have been to many temples but this one was the cleanest and the most well-managed one. We were informed that many of the devotees of Maharaj Ji live abroad, who regularly visit this temple and have helped in the renovation of this old temple.

One important Highlight is the gurukul that functions here. Many young boys are educated according to the ancient Indian Vedic system and learn all Vedas and Upanishads.

They are trained to become Hindu priests when they grow up. If you’re thinking what is the big deal here. They get jobs as priests in countries like the US, Canada and Australia. Yeah, let this soak in!
