Standing tall at a height of 8000 feet, Jakhoo hill is the highest peak in Shimla. The view of the snow-clad Himalayan mountains and the green valley from this point is captivating. The scenic sight makes it the most visited viewpoint in Shimla. The peak also houses the ancient Jakhoo Temple which is believed to be the place where the Hindu deity Hanuman rested while searching for Sanjivni Booti, the panacea used to revive Lakshmana. A 108-feet-high statue of Hanuman was erected at the spot in 2010 making it more attractive.
