Hanuman Temple in karachi, pakistan!

Hanuman or anjaneya swami has no borders no restrictions. His temples are available at all places like indonesia, malaysia, nepal. now one is found in karachi, pakistan. details are here:

One of Pakistan's most revered Hindu shrines, a centuries-old Hanuman temple in this southern port city, is set to be renovated thanks to the efforts of the community.
The aesthetically designed Shri Panch Mukhi Hanuman temple in Soldier Bazar is a heritage landmark of Karachi due to its unique five-headed statue of Lord Hanuman.

The government has not extended help for the renovation, and representatives of the temple's management said the work will be done with contributions made by the Hindu community.
''Over the past few years, the number of devotees has increased and so we need to expand the temple. Moreover, the structure of the temple is becoming weaker, so the present priest, Shri Ram Nath Mishra, decided to take the initiative,'' Pawan Kumar Perchani, the advisor to the priest, told The News.
A few years ago, the renovation of the temple's dome cost the community Rs 1.8 million. It is expected that the community will have to raise more money for the renovation that is expected to start soon.But members of the temple's management said funds are hard to come by. ''We don't receive enough donations. Most of the money we collect every day is utilised for the day-to-day upkeep of the temple. We hope the Pakistan Hindu Council, formed recently, is able to raise funds now,'' said a caretaker.The temple is of special significance to the Hindu community. Devotees say Lord Ram too visited the sacred site.
