Temples and Tastes of Tamil Nadu

This journey is dedicated to the Kingdom of Architectural Marvels. Spirituality is the key element here, that resulted in the thousands of Hindu temples formation in Tamil Nadu. Concurrently, all these temples are equally marvellous in Engineering. A special mention to Chettinad , the cuisine of Chettinad is uses a variety of freshly ground spices including cumin, fenugreek, fennel, clove, bay leaf, turmeric and tamarind. The cuisine is well known for the complexity of flavours. Also noteworthy are the heritage mansions of chettinadu which still draw a lot of tourists

This temple is situated in beginning of the corner of Mela Raja Veedhi (west Raja Street), hence it is known as Moolai (corner) Anjaneyar temple. Small and simple temple,with Anjaneyar is in lifting of Meru Mountain pose. His prathapam(might) is thus shown here and hence it is called Prathapa Veera(mighty warrior)Anjaneyar here. By the side of sanctum, there is a small replica of main deity Anjaneyar in same pose. When I visited this temple on 24.04.2018,Tuesday evening, not much crowd there and even bhattacharya was not there. I submitted betalnut leaf mala(vethilai malai) to Lord and prayed. Premises were kept clean and without much garbage. Good maintenance.

We visited this temple because it is close to the Big Temple. It was built exclusively for Lord Anjaneyar. This is a very large Hanuman temple with a three-tiered rajaoopuram and a dhwaja sthambha. There are many wonderful paintings and sculptures. Note the upward looking golden eyes that are blessing the devotees with self-confidence which brings them all prosperity in life.

Most of us visiting Thanjavur generally go to have Darshan of Rajarajeswarar at the Big Temple. But this temple a little away from the main temple in the west corner main street, Raaja Veedhi, has got a significant historical importance. In Tamilnadu this is the second largest Hanuman temple with its own three-tiered Raja Gopuram and a Dhwaja Sthambha. The first largest temple separately for Lord Anjaneya is in Iyenkulam near Kanchipuram. This temple was built by the Maratha king, Sri Prathapa Simha (1739-1763) under the guidance of his guru, Sri Sethu Bhava Swami in the north-western corner, in the direction of Vayu, father of Anjaneya. In Tamil "Moolai" means "Corner". Hence this temple is known as 'Moolai Anjaneyavar Koil". One can see an 18-pillared alankara mandampam with many paintings and sculptures. The picture of Zodiac or Rasi Mandalam is seen on the roof. Another picture depicts Rahu Graha trying to swallow Surya and Chandra. On the northern wall of the sanctum there are two sculptures of Lord Anjaneya shown in yoga posture sitting on the top of a mountain. In his four hands each one wields sankha and chakra, and shows varada and abhaya mudras. The portrait of the king Veera pratap is shown in one picture while his son, Tulaja II is shown worshipping the lord in the other picture. Both these sculptures are facing north and so are considered as auspicious bestowing yoga siddhi to the worshippers. If you happen to visit Tanjavur, do't miss to see this temple which is quite nearby. The presiding deity, Veera Hanuman, is seen facing the east.
