Veera Anjaneyar Sannadhi

This three year old temple is on the way to Ramar temple from Renugambal temple and close to the Draupadhi Mandapam. The beautiful deity, Veera Anjaneyar, is about 8 feet tall. This Anjaneyar was in the main road without any temple and when they wanted to move him for the new temple, they could not. Only after adorning him with a Butter Alankaram made of about 40 kg of butter, he moved.

In Padavedu, you can not see the Navagraha shrine in any of the temples. [Navagrha worship came into practice only in later period] and worshipping Verra Anjaneyar is considered equivalent to Navagraha worship. He appears with his tail rounded up and it is considered that he has contained the Navagrahas in his tail. He is appearing with his foot in a way ready fly to Ayodhya from Lanka with his hands in a posture of blessing the devotees. His foot and tail are considered very significant here.

This is a very powerful Anjaneyar, who can fulfill all your wishes.  It is said that a devotee from Hyderabad came here and prayed for his son’s future  to shape -up  successfully. Since it got fulfilled without any problem, he offered a big golden Ramar dollar which adorns the Anjaneyar even now.

Padavedu is protected by Veera Anjaneyar and Kali on all 8 directions and so you can see Veera Anjaneyar temples in many places around Padavedu. There is one [small shrine] at the back of the Renugambal temple also
