Viswaroopa Adhivyadhihara Sri Bhaktha Anjaneyaswami Temple is located around 10 kilometres away from the heart of the city, in a locality called Nanganallur. Commonly called the Anjaneya Temple in short, it gets its name from its principal deity, Lord Hanuman. He is also called Anjaneya, because he is the son of Anjana, the young Vanara (monkey) woman, and after him, the temple is named. The cornerstone of the temple was laid around 1989 by a group of devout Anjaneya followers - Sri Maruti Bhakta Samajan. It was finally open for the public in 1995. The most important aspect of the temple is its 32 feet idol. Lord Hanuman has been shaped out of single granite stone and then given shape.
The temple is not very rich in history, but it sure respects it. The presence of both Lord Rama and Lord Krishna in the temple is a nod to that. It is a must see place not only for those who are devotees of Anjaneya or Hanuman but anyone who wants to get a glimpse of a different sort of temple other than Vishnu and Shiva, which are common in Chennai.
