In this article, we will first-time model galactic black holes in pure Lovelock gravity. Instead of working with higher spacetime dimensions, we assume (implicitly) the Hernquist-type mass profile for the galaxy in such a way that the horizon structure of a pure LoveLock black hole remains intact. In this way, we will model the galactic pure Lovelock black hole with arbitrary dimension ($d$) and order ($N$). Then, we will specialize this technique for critical dimension $d=3N+1$. We want to see how the galactic parameters affect the time domain single, quasinormal modes, photon sphere, innermost stable circular orbits (ISCO), and shadow radius. The time domain signal may allow us to identify the galactic parameters as well as to distinguish them from the general relativistic (GR) counterparts if it is observed in future generations of gravitational wave measurements. We also calculate Hawking temperature for the same setup and want to see how Hawking's temperature will be affected due to the presence of a galaxy. It shows that the presence of a galactic halo can quench Hawking temperature.
