ANJANEYA SWAMI, HANUMARAMBALAM, PAYYANUR, KERALA
Shree Raghavapuram, Payyanur
On conducting 'prashnam' it was decided to open a doorway for the temple on the western side facing 'Ezhimala', and to shut the doorway facing eastern side and also to reinstall (punarpadishta) Shree Ramachandra with Shree Sita Devi along with Shree Lakshma. Accordingly the eastern doorway is even now closed, and Shree Ramachandra along with His concert was installed.
In the 'prashnam', it was seen that the 'Devasannithyam' (the presense of the Deva) of the temple dates back to the 'threthayugam'. It is believed that during the Rama-Ravana yudham at Lanka, when Shree Hanuman carried the 'Aushdha Shailam' (Mountain with Mridhasanjeevani) to Lanka for giving life to Lakshmana, a piece of the mountain broke and fell down from His hands at this place (where the temple is located) and thus the 'Ezhimala' was formed. From that time itself the presence or the Chaitanya of Shree Hanuman and Shree Ramaswami was felt and experienced here.
The temple is the abode of Shree Ramachandra with Shree Sita Devi ('parivarasametham'). People from very remote places also come over to this temple to seek the blessings of the Lord Hanuman. In one sense the very existence of this temple became possible only due to Shree Anjaneya Swami since the protection of this temple also is vested in the hands of the Lord Shree Hanuman.
The temple is the abode of Shree Ramachandra with Shree Sita Devi. With Shree Ramachandra and Shree Sita Devi as the main deity of the temple, the devoted brother Lakshmana is also seen. Normally Shree Lakshman is not seen in same pedestal with his Lord Rama, but the uniqueness of this temple is that all these three are on the same pedestal
Shree Hanuman's temple
Festivals and Traditions
The offering of "Avil" (rice flake) to Lord Anjaneya Swami is famous in this temple. The offering is normally done only in the evening between four and 'sayaraksha'. It is said that Lord Hanuman who is always meditating upon Shri Ramachandra Swami will be giving audience during this time without any hindrance to His meditation upon His Lord.
The greatest 'Shree Ramabaktha', Lord Anjaneya is meditating upon His Lord Shree Rama all the time. His Lord had devoted the name of His temple itself in the name of His Baktha, as 'Hanumarambalam'. Great are Shree Rama and His Baktha both waiting for their devotees in this kshethra, to bestow on them their love and show the path of love.
LET ANJANEYA SWAMI BLESS US ALL
