Anjaneyadri : Birthplace of Lord Hanuman




The Anjaneyadri hill in Hampi lies in the centre of  Anegondi area, Karnataka state, India.
It is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Hanuman. Hanuman was born to Anjana and thus Hanuman was also called as Anjaneya, and his birthplace Anjaneyadri (Anjana's Hill).

Located at a distance of just 5 km from Hampi’s historical site, devotees of Hanuman consider this place as sacred. The hill has a white washed Hanuman temple at the top. It has about 575 steps. The entire white-washed structure of the Hanuman temple has a roof with a pyramid structure and a small red dome atop. Visitors can see the red flags fluttering in the air from a distance. 

The idol of Lord Hanuman has been carved out of a rock. Apart from Lord Hanuman’s temple, the place also has a small shrine of Lord Rama and his wife Sita.

The view from the top is breathtaking as you see patches of paddy fields and the Hampi city ruins around.



And this is how it looks from top of the hill. The river is Thungabhadra.
