Lord Hanuman

Temple History

Sree Prasannanjaneya Swamy temple is situated near the Hindupram-Kadiri National highway. This ancient temple of Lord Hanuman was built in 15th century during Vijaya Raghava Rayalu’s dynasty, and later as most of the temples in India, this was also faced the wrath of the Muslim invaders.

This temple was left in dark for so many centuries and the deity was not even offered daily ’Harathi’. The strong belief existing in Hindu hearts that God gets his wishes fulfilled through human beings; was proved once again and the asthikatwa of the people like Karanam Vivekananda Murthy could cross all the hurdles and renovated the Temple in the year 1984.

The temple was restored from dilapidated condition and the deity was being offered with the regular pooja’s from 10th February, 1984(according to Hindu calendar Magha Sudda Dasami).The temple was recognized by the people nearby and regular seva’s were being offered to the presiding deity.

For the last two decades the temple was under financial crunches, and the pooja’s were being performed only on Saturdays for all these days.

Again this time younger generation of the same village have taken the initiative and developed the temple in the year 2008. Our Sincere Thanks to the painstaking efforts by Mr.K.P.L.N.Murthy and like minded supporters such as Messrs G.Raghavender, Praveena, M.KalyanChander, Jyothirmayi , Hiranmayi, chandramohan , Sanjeev, Kalyani and all the people who have taken the active part to re modify the temple and made it attractive and lively to the devotees.

The dilapidated temple and the deity, which were neglected for a long period, were given the prominence and on 19-2-2009; silver jubilee celebrations were performed. The Sacred (Camel) Ustra Pretista Mahostavam also has taken place on the same day. According to the book “Prasanna Samhita” camel is the “vaahanam” to Lord Hanuman. Since then regular pooja’s were being performed every day. A pujari has been inducted to perform regular pooja and seva’s.

The temple is west faced called “JanamejayaPratista” which makes the deity powerful. The temple is in the midst of 0.25 cents of land with a huge Banyan Tree surrounded by ancient “Nagasilas” is located temple campus. There is another interesting and botanically significant feature in the temple campus — where in two neighboring Raavi and Neem trees clubbed into one stem.
