Veera Anjaneya Swamy Temple, Kakkalur – The Temple
The temple consists of Garbhagraham and a big mandapam in front of it. The Veera Anjaneya is about nine feet in height and facing north. Lord Hanuman is in standing posture with his right hand in Abaya mudra and on the left hand he is holding Sowgandika flower. In both the hands he is wearing kankanam. The long tail of Sri Anjaneya is seen raised above his head. There is also a small bell in his tail as in temples where Anjaneya was installed by Sri Vyasa Raja.
The Lord’s tuft is seen neatly tied. The Lord is wearing three sets of ornaments in his neck. His lotus feets are seen ever ready and eager to come for the help of his devotee. Above all the glowing eyes of the Lord give the devotees all the compassion they seek and comforts they require. On the one side of the Anjaneya temple is a small Pillayar temple. Therefore, a devotee who is visiting this temple can have Dharshan of the ‘Adi’ (beginning – Sri Ganesha) and ‘Andha’ (end-Sri Anjaneya).
There is a peepal tree on which a neem tree had entwined, standing between these two sannidhis. Devotees believe that standing between these entwined trees and the entrance of the temple and offer prayers to Lord Hanuman their wishes will be met at the earliest. There is a small kitchen in the side of the temple.
