Lovely temple which looks beautiful. When we visited there were lots of school girls asking for prayers which was really refreshing to see. Not sure about how many tourists visit this temple as I came to pray. Had a really nice visit there.

A beautiful sacred place to visit, where legend has it that Lord Hannuman leapt over fromSouth India to find the Goddess Sita, who had been kidnapped by Lord Ravana. A must see for its simplicity.

Place is part of Ramayanam Story, where Sita Amma imprisoned and later Shri Anjaneyar (Hanuman Ji) rescued. It was moderated, not as original place due to road construction. Still a divine temple. If you avoid teasing the Monkeys they will not do anything.

You will see foot prints of lord Hanuman, its a small temple but very nice, you will see Sita mata sitting under the tree and a nice water stream is flowing!

I feel this was build just for the sake of tourist attraction. I did not find any historical relevance here.
