Ragigudda Anjaneya Temple Tours

Up a hillock lies this ornate temple dedicated to the Hindu god Hanuman. Resembling a monkey, Hanuman is worshipped for various benefits, including health, wealth, happiness, and success. There are also shrines devoted to Shiva, Rama, Sita and Lakshmana.

It is believed that a heap of ragi (a food grain) was turned into a stone, giving the temple its name. It was then that the Hindu holy trinity Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva turned themselves into stone to remain at the temple site. These large stones now bear engravings representing this trinity.

Located in a suburb of Bangalore and built in 1969, the temple has become a social center with a charitable focus. There is an ornate gate that leads to an open auditorium, pond, and yoga center. Several cows that wander the area. In December of every year, the festival of Sri Hanumajjayanthi attracts nearly 35,000 pilgrims for a 12-day long event.
