Veera Maruthi Temple, Karkala Overview

Located opposite to Shri Venkatramana Temple, Veer Maruthi Temple was originally constructed in year 1539 and renovated in year 1972. Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the temple houses a huge statue of Lord towering over 15 feet.

It is believed that the statue was uncovered from beneath the grounds of Anekere near Karkala. The statue is quite different from the usual with left hand placed on the hip while right hand pointing towards sky, legs in walking motion, eyes with angry expression and hair waiving in the air. It is also said that Tipu Sultan was an ardent devotee and had offered a silver ornament which can still be seen around the neck of statue. An annual recital of Sri Ram jai ram Jai Jai Ram is recited in the month of December.
