Andhra Pradesh and Anjaneya
It will not be an exaggeration to state that there is no village in Andhra Pradesh without
a Hanuman temple, especially after the reigns of Vijayanagara samrajya spreading its
wings throughout the present Andhra Pradesh. Here Anjaneya Swami is popular as
Hanumanthudu or Anjaneyalu.

Guru Sri Vyasatheerthulu

The Vijayanagara samrajya was under the rule of Saluva
dynasty, later Saluvas were defeated, making way for the
Thaulavs to rule the samrajya. During 1509, Krishnadevaraya
become the emperor of Vijayanagara samrajya. But during
the Saluvas rule and also during Thaulavs regin,Sri
Vyasatheerthulu a devotee of Vishnu and a
Hanumathupasakadu was the Guru of the kings. Sri
Vyasatheerthulu was spreading Hanumat Bhakti and
spirituality. He had also installed ["pradishta"] many
Hanuman idols and constructed temples whenever he was
His Visit to Machavaram
As Sri Vyasatheerthulu was touring
along with his disciples on foot, they
halted at Indra Kiladri and relaxing.
Lord Maruti appeared in the form of
vanara and got them up and gave
indication to follow him. They all did
so and crossed over mountains and
forests and reached the present place
of Machavaram. Lord Maruti in
vanara form asked Sri
Vyasatheerthulu to construct a
temple at that place and to install the
Anjaneya vigraham (idol) with Sankh
and Chakra on the either side of the
idol. After having directed so Lord
Maruti proceeded towards northern direction reciting Ramanamam and disappeared. As
directed by Lord Maruti, Sri Vyasatheerthulu initiated temple construction and left for
another village.
Rediscovery of the Vigraha
In subsequent to fall of Vijayanagera samrajya and power going to others, many temples
were fallen pray and were ruined including many Anjaneya temples constructed by Sri

Lord Hanuman
Our salutations to this
Hanuman who always
brings subham - everything
that is good - for His
devotees and eliminates the
bad and the evil. He
removes even the traces of
bad thoughts and deeds
from His devotees. i.e He
makes them pure in words,
thought and deed.

Vyasatheerthulu. About one hundred and fifty years ago, a contractor Sri Dunna
Veeraswamy Naidu was constructing Eluru Vijayawada road. During that time Lord
Anjaneya gave him a divine direction by appearing in his dream to excavate the idol
from a particular place. Sri Naidu proceeded to the site indicated by Lord Anjaneya in his

dream, with his laborers for digging work. A small excellent divine idol form with
Sindhoora decoration was excavated from the very same place where a peepal tree was
existing. He had arranged for a thatched shed then and there for facilitating the darshan
to devotees. Earlier to temple construction the peepal tree was providing pleasant
shelter at the place and that very same tree is still alive and could be seen.
From then onwards the Lord Anjaneya of this kshethra
had been fulfilling the desires of the devotees with his
Sri Dasaanjaneya
Sri Dasa Anjaneya vigraha is about two to three feet tall
and a ardha shila in nature. Sri Dasa Anjaneya is seen
here as a Dasa, sitting on His kneels in fornt of Sri Rama.
While his both the hands are seen folded with the palms
joint in 'anjali' offering 'pranams' to His Lord. His bright
kundalam is big in size and daziling. He is seen wearing
beautiful ornaments in His arms, chest and legs. His
yagyopavetham with three strings of thread is seen
brightly. His tulf is seen flowing / waving in the slow
breeze. As typical of Sri Vyasaraja pradishta the Lords
tail is seen raised above the head and has a bell tied in
the fag end.
This sthala puranam has not been inscribed on any standard form but only being told by
elders since good olden days. This temple is under Endowment Department of AP
Dhanurmasam and Hanumath Jayanti are the main festivals celebrated in this temple.
Aku (betel leaf) pooja is performed with great reverence. Devotees from around
Vijayawada throng for darshan, especially on Tuesday.
The temple is located 6 km from Central bus stand of Vijayawada, and 5 km from
Vijayawada Railway Station.
Under inspiration of the Lord Anjaneya many devotees had made many slokas including a
panchavimsati, in praise of Sri Dasaanjaneya Swami of this kshethra.
machavara vasa sathakoti manmatha vilasaa
kasari putra hanumantha keerthimantha ||
Though Lord Anjaneyas murthi(idol) of the kshethra is small, kirthi is great,
and a visit to this kshethra can bring peace, love and lot of inspiration.
