Day 2

Anjanadri hill is believed to be the birthplace of monkey-god Hanuman.

According to Hindu mythology he was born to Anjana. Thus Hanuman is also known as Anjaneya and his birthplace as Anjaneyadri (Anjaneya’s hill). There are more than 550 steps to reach the summit of the hill. 
The simple temple has an image of Hanuman carved on a rock.

Another attraction of the Hanuman Temple is the “floating stone” kept in a small tank filled with water. The stone is said to be one of the many used for construction of “Ram Sethu”, also known as Adam’s Bridge.

View from the summit.
