Lord Hanuman

Temple History

Sri Veera Pratapa Anjaneya Swamy temple is located in Belaguru, Hosadurga Taluka in Chitradurga District of Karnataka State.

The main deity of this place is Lord Hanuman called "Veera Prathapa Anjaneya". It was installed by Sage Vyasaraya about 750 years ago. Sri Bindu Madhav Sharma, a member of a family of ancestral priests of a Hanuman Temple in this town attained the exalted state of self realization 30 years back. Since then, through the light of his self transformation he has transformed the face of this sleepy town into a true "Belakku-uru" synonymous with town of lights - Belagur.

Apart from renovating and rebuilding the three temples of Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu, the entire credit for making the temple as splendid as it is today goes to the Swamiji. He has constructed spacious rooms for devotees to stay and halt so that they may be able to spend more time in this hallowed place and absorb its divine vibrations. On every Poornima day Homa are performed and over a thousand people are fed. Many devotees have experienced miracles performed by the Swamiji which have had the effect of transforming even the most hard core atheist.
