Mahavir Mandir is one of the holiest Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Hanuman, located in Patna, Bihar, India. Millions of pilgrims visit the temple every year.. Acharya Kishore Kunal is the secretary of the Mahavir Mandir Temple Trust, Patna.

The Mahavir Mandir Trusts have the second highest budget in North India after the famous Maa Vaishno Devi shrine.The earning of Mahavir Mandir has gone now up to an average of ₹1 lakh per day.As per the Patna High Court judgment in 1948 the temple exists since time immemorial. But from the scrutiny of historical facts and traditions it appears that this temple was originally established by Swami Balanand, an ascetic of Ramanandi sect in around 1730 A.D. This temple gained popularity in 1947 with large number of Hindu refugees coming to Patna after the partition of India. Subsequently, temple was rebuilt as a concrete house at same time. Even this was broken down in 1987 to make a huge marble temple. The idol of Sankat-Mochan stands in it
