The monarchs of Orchha were great devotees of Lord Rama, the fabled God-king who ruled over Ayodhya according to the ancient epic, the Ramayana. The Ramayana tells us that Kishkandhapuri was the place where Rama first met the monkey, Hanuman, who belonged to the vanara race, or the race that lived in a vana (forests). Hanuman became one of the greatest devotees and followers of Lord Rama, and in time, was recognized as a God himself.

The Hanuman Temple was built in 1717 by the then Orchha ruler, Raja Sujan Singh. Apparently, the king was so impressed by a presentation of Tulsidasí epic poem, Rama Charitra Manas, that he decided to erect all the prominent places mentioned in the epic, in Orchha.

Accordingly, the Hanuman Temple was built here, and idols of both Rama and Hanuman were installed in it. The temple architecture is similar to the architecture prevalent in many of the temples of South India
