Sanjeeva Parvatha Anjaneyar has a separate shrine (as seen below as a view from the main sannidhi).


Anjaneyar is having Sanjeeva parvatha hill in his right and his facing north (Kubera Corner) is considered very special.


The vedic chanting by the school students made it a very divine experience on this saturday morning
