Pudupakkam Anjaneyar Temple Speciality

6 feet tall Anjaneya swamy appears majestically standing, ready to fly, facing north, where Mount Sanjeevi stood, while the body was facing east. His right leg is firm on the ground while the left is ready to fly. One of the hands shows Abhaya Mudra – providing protection to the devotee. The left is on the hip. There is a bell at the end of the raised tail above the head. There is the Lotus symbol on his navy. Lord Ganesh comes from his shrine at the foot of the hill. There are 108 steps to reach Gajagiri Hill, where the temple is located. For Goddess Sita, every place is Ayodhya where Lord Sri Rama is present. Thus, Sri Rama is present where Hanuman is present. He has his sanctuary opposite that of His Bhakta in this hill temple. The story that Sri Hanuman flew and brought Sanjeevi Parvatha to revive Lakshmana is popular among us. It is believed that sage Vyasa established 108 temples for Sri Hanuman. Based on this belief, the temple on the hill has 108 steps. The Pudupakkam temple is closely related to Nityakalyana Perumal Temple in Tiruvidanthai, one of the 108 Divyadesas of Lord Perumal.


Sri Anjaneya swamy is the only person who has visited Lanka three times. The first time was on a mission looking for Goddess Sita. He met her in Ravana’s Ashoka Vanam in his land , identified himself with Kanayazhi – the wedding ring she gave to Sri Rama and received his Choodamani to prove to Rama that he had met his wife. During this first visit, he also played the role of a wise diplomat to prosecute Ravana and hand it to Lord Rama with all the honors. As the king of Lanka was relentless, he showed his power by setting fire to his land . The second step was the march of the army, the construction of the Sethu Bridge and his arrival in Lanka with Lord. The third was his departure from Lanka and his return with Mount Sanjeevi by air. The Rama-Ravana war lasted 18 months, according to Sage Valmiki’s epic. Many famous commanders of Ravana and his brothers sacrificed life during the war. Ravana was shaken. Yet his son Inderjit promised that he would rebuild the glory of the kingdom by defeating Rama with his martial prowess backed by a magical war. He dropped Lakshmana with his arrow applied with the Mantra snake. However, as an embodiment of Aadhisesha, Lakshmana fell only weakened by the power of Nagasthra of Indrajit. An herbal remedy was necessary to bring him back to consciousness. This herb was only available in Sanjeevi Parvatha. Hanuman left with all his strength and returned with the mount itself. Lakshmana woke up earlier than the smell of the plant touched him. On the way back, Hanuman has just assumed his Sandhyavandhana, the evening prayers. It was in Pudupakkam, where Sri Veera Anjaneya Temple is located, on the hills of Gajagiri.
