More than 300 Hanuman temples for protecting the country installed by a sage

One of the greatest saints of the Madhva Dwaita tradition has been "Sri Vyasa raya Teertha". His guru was Brahmanya Tirtha.

He travelled across the length and breadth of India. spreading the message of Vishnu Bhakti.It was a time, when the country was undergoing numerous invasions by foreigners and there were wars every where. Temples were destroyed and devotion to God was on the decline. Swami Vyasaraya, in order to divinely protect the country, built 732 temples for Lord Veera Hanuman all across south India. He was also one of the Gurus of the great Vijayanagara empire.

Even today, people who are genuinely concerned about the state of our motherland, India, must visit these temples and offer their prayers for the well being of the country.

Such Hanuman idols can be distinguished from the rest by the following, although not every murthi will have these identifications.In all these temples, the form of Hanuman is that of Veera Hanuman who is the personification of courage and valor. Normally in other temples, the form of Hanuman is that of Bhakta Hanuman who is ever in devotion to Lord Rama. But in this case, Sri Vyasaraya intentionally chose a much more fierce aspect of the Lord to project the country.

- Presence of Hair Tuft

- Left hand raised up to or above head showing Abhaya Hasta(fearlessness) towards devotees

- Holding Sougandhika Flower in right hand ( Probably this species of flower has been lost over the ages!)

- The tail being raised above the head and made a semi-circle, and the end of the tail being curled. This indicates his anger at evil ( When a monkey gets angry, it raises its tail over its head!)

- Bell tied at the end of the tail, indicating the power of Atharvana veda mantras

- Conch, Chakra, sun and the moon engraved on the idol

- A demon carved beneath the legs

We have listed close to 200 of the 732 temples. It is possible that some of the could have been lost over a period of time.
