Anjaneya Temple - Review
One of the most and very few of the temples dedicated to the Lord Hanuman, the Viswaroopa Adhivyadhihara Sri Bhaktha Anjaneyaswami Temple is home to 32- feet idol of the monkey God. The beauty of this idol lies in the fact that it is sculpted out of a single granite stone. This idol was consecrated in the year 1995 after being constructed in 1989. Along with the idol what draws visitors to the temple is the huge 90-feet shrine.
Visitors in seek of good health among others flock to this temple for blessings. Being a Hanuman temple, you will obviously have the idols of Sri Rama, his brother Sri Lakshmana and his wife Seetha indoctrinated here. The temple lies a little outside the city, at a distance of some 10-odd kilometres. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Chennai itinerary 1 day.

Anjaneya Temple, Chennai Reviews
Nice place, Huge Hanuman.. parking a car is a problem in Saturdays. Don't go closer to temple for parking.. you will be messed in the small streets with other vehicles. Part it 2 streets before in some good place. There are many big streets near where you can park your car.
Gigantic figure,oof deity.. can see clearly even from a distance. Always crowded but Not clean surroundings. No water to wash hands after removing footwear. Empty prasad Cups strewn around. Overflowing garbage bins just outside.. frequency of cleaning to be increased. Water for hand washing to be made available. No order in Footwear keeping.
A must visit temple if you are a religious person. My favourite god is hanuman and visiting this temple is so auspicious because you can see the deity even from the entrance. The locality is itself surrounded by many more temples in nearby streets but this is really special as the huge figure of Lord Hanuman is a promising sight.
Very nice and power full temple. Gigantic Anjaneyar will always give blessings when you visit there. Temple is clean and neat. Maintenance is pretty good. You have to go in line to get blessings of Hanuman. They organized it very well. You ll get very good prasadhams always. It's a must visit temple. No proper parking area. But still you can park your vechicle in roadside. It's safe only.
Hanuman at this temple is 32 feet high and it is made up of on a single stone. As a general practice, you can notice “Vada Garland” (Vada is a type of food) at Hanuman temples. At this temple every day 6000 Vadas are prepared and garland is made out of it. As per the known historical information Tanjore Big temple was constructed by placing the idol first and then the temple was built. Nanganallur Anjaneya temple was constructed in that same fashion as first the idol was incarnated and then the entire temple complex was constructed. The temple tower is 92 feet high and the “kalasam” kept on the top of the tower is made up of copper and covered by gold plates. Sannidhis for Rama, Krishna, Garuda, Ganesha and Naga were constructed lately.
