Anjaneyar Temple, Perumber Kandigai, Kanchipuram
Anjaneyar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Anjaneya located at Perumber Kandikai Village in Kanchipuram District. This is a very ancient temple without any roof. Villagers have tried many times to construct a roof over the deity but failed. There is a popular belief among them that Sri Anjaneya Swami is growing in size, as days pass by. 

The name of the village itself is very unique, Perum + Peru + Kandigai, meaning that one should be very fortunate in order to take birth in this village. This village is situated approximately 5 Kms from Achirappakkam (a small town in Chennai – Tiruchy national Highway).
It is said that during ancient times, there were nearly 33 temples in this village. As days passed on, most of them got damaged due to various reasons and only a few among them were left.
