Anjaneya Swami Temple, Puttaparthi

Home » Destinations » Puttaparthi » Attractions » Anjaneya Swami Temple

The Anjaneya Swami Temple is located on the Gorupuram Road and can be entered through an entrance marked by a Siva Lingam. This Lingam was brought from Kasim by Satya Sai Baba. The temple has a sanctum on which the idol of the deity is installed in such a way that it looks etched on a cavern. At the foot of the deity, there is a pool of water which symbolises Lord Hanuman’s devotion for Lord Rama. It is believed that the pool represents Hanuman’s tears.

The legends state that the deity stopped Satya Sai Baba, by saying that it is the god who is to pay respect, when he was about to observe circumambulation at the temple. The image of the temple shows carvings of Hanuman standing inside a cave.
