In this post , we share our visit experience to Gali Anjaneya swamy temple near Byataraayanapura , Bangalore - Mysore road .
Highlights of this spot
- Believed to be established by Sri Vyasaraja thirtha during 14th century
- Idols of Lord Hanuman as Gali Anjaneya , Rama Sita Lakshmana , Ganesha & Venugopalaswamy are consecrated here
- Hanuman Idol faces towards west
- Gali in kannada means "Wind" or "Air". As hanuman is considered as son of Vayu , hence the name Gali Anjaneya
- Hanuman Idol is smeared with Sindhura (a saffron coloured paste ) - considered as one of the only south Indian temple of this kind.
This temple is easily accessible & visible on the main road side . The Rajagopura is a beautiful one on which many idols of Hanuman , Rama family are carved. On entering this gopuram , straight visible are sanctums of Hanuman , Rama , Ganesha & Venugopalaswamy .
The queue system is good and well managed by the staff here . Darshan of Lord Hanuman is at last after covering other sanctums. Hanuman Idol may be around 4 to 5 feet in a standing position and has a mustache. For us it seem to resemble Kengal temple. Prasadam in form of Theertha , Rasaayana is served here.
Temple is open for darshan from morning 7 to 1 PM and in evening between 5.30 to 8 PM. Usually crowded a nice place to visit with family and friends . Do visit this spot and share your experience.
