Anaipatti Anjaneyar

With an incomplete Rajagopuram, this Anaipatti Anjaneyar Temple faces eastward. In this temple, the Nandi Mandapam has two side-by-side Nandhis; one facing the Lord and the other facing the Goddess. Artha Mandapam, Maha Mandapam, and Sanctum make up the Sanctum Sanctorum. The Maha Mandapam hosts beautiful and intricate sculptures of Subramanya, Kirathamurthy, and Adhikara Nandhi with his Devi.

This Anaipatti Anjaneyar temple, which is 40 km from Dindigul, is located near Nilakottai. We had to drive 5 km from Nilakottai. The temple of Anjaneya more to reach. At times, we traveled parallel to the Vaigai River, but there was no water in it. But there is a dam near the temple called Peranai, a regulator built by the British.

To reach this Anaipatti Anjaneyar (Anai meaning dam, Patti meaning, village), an obscure village, we had to cross a bridge. The atmosphere was cool and the temple was set in a sylvan environment. The temple is very small, as it is typically found in temples around here, with no special architectural Splendour.

We entered the Anaipatti Anjaneyar temple, and within the sanctum sanctorum, which was about 4 foot high and was decorated with silk, we could see the idol of Anjaneyar. The eyes were big, the display board states that with one eye, God is watching his devotees and the other eye is looking at the direction of Ayodhya, the abode of Lord Rama.

The hand that carried the Sanjeevani Parvathi (the hill he brought during the Ramayana war from the Himalayas) is on his thigh. The tail is pointing upwards.

Although I could not see all the specifics, all the explanations were provided by the display board. The idol gets half immersed in water as the water rises in the river Vaigai. But when I went, it was dry because of the lack of rain inside. The Archanas are given to another small deity held outside the sanctum sanctorum.

There is another Hanuman idol at the back of this sanctum, where pilgrims light lamps. It was windy and it was difficult to light the lamp but after a few unsuccessful attempts, I could also light one. There are another Vinayagar deity and a serpent God outside this temple.

The legend says that Draupadi wanted to drink water when the Pancha Pandavas were in exile, and Yudhishitir sent the elder brother to Bheema to get the same. On his journey, Anjaneya intercepts him and there is an argument between the two, but Bheema can not get water. Bheema goes back to Yudhishtira who advises him to pay respect to Anjaneya and he would oblige. Bheema does as advised and gleefully enables Anjaneya to take water from Vaigai for Bheema. This is the place they met.

I enjoyed the visit to this Anaipatti Anjaneyar temple, and I decided to add the tour to another fascinating experience. Just outside the temple is a huge banyan tree that provides travelers with a sort of canopy. In village eateries, this place is abundant, and simple South Indian food is offered and we decided to have our break quickly in this simple open-air environment as the next possible hotel was at least an hour away. There was an old lady making kuzhi paniharam and Dosai. The smell of freshly cooked food filled the air and they used primitive cooking methods, using dried palm leaves and coconut husk as fuel. As people used biofuel for cooking, which has become a thing of the past for everyone, I was really fascinated by this. At that eatery, we decided to have a go. We were made to sit under the Banyan tree on plastic stools and food was served in a banana leaf for us. The Paniharam and Dosai were soft and we were able to finish our breakfast with a lot of ado. Three of us were dining, and when I learned it cost us just Rs. 14, I was shocked. We could really enjoy the village folks’ simplicity.

Temple Mallishwarar.

We found this 1500-year-old Siva temple just one kilometer from Nilakottai on the way to Madurai. Siva is referred to as Mallishwarar here, and his consort sits outside the sanctum. The history of the Anaipatti Anjaneyar temple is not known. The temple entrance is only 4 feet x 2 1/2 feet open, and we had to stoop in order to get inside. Outside the temple, there was an idol of Bairavar.

How to reach out to:

Dindigul is the closest railway station. Daily Dindigul, Vatala Gundu, and Madurai buses, although the frequency is poor. It is safer to stay about 50 km away in Dindigul or Madurai.

As the name suggests, this Anjaneyar stands six feet high on a twisted pole as a sign of his heroism, lifting the Sanjeevi hill with his right hand and placing his left hand on his thigh. Whereas the devotion and mercy of Hanuman are manifested in such a way that one eye looks at Ayodhya and one eye looks at itself with compassion to help the seeking devotees.

Yudhisthira, the eldest of the Pandavas, brought his brother Bhima downstairs to fetch water.

When Beaman draws water from the Vegavati river, Sri Anjaneyar transforms into a large ape and prevents Bima from taking water. The war is going on for both of them.
