Timings: Closes in afternoon.

Highlights:

  1. Swayambhu murti of Lord Hanuman.
  2. Around 500 year old temple.

Khetra Purāam: The swayambhu murti of Veeraanjaneya was found by some locals around 500 years back. When they wanted to move the murti to Maheshwaram, a near by well-populated area, and consecrate it, they could not move the murti. Then Lord Hanuman appeared in the dream of the locals and said that He wished to stay in the place as the current temple.

Details of the Temple: The current temple structure is renovated and is well-maintained. The temple attracts huge number of devotees everyday and is quite popular in the surrounding villages. The Swayambhu murti of Veeraanjaneya is very large and is covered with Sindhur. There are new temples of Lord Rama, Shiva and Navagrahas inside the premises. The temple is under endowments department and hence sells archana/pooja and Prasadam (Tamarind rice, laddu) tickets.
