Sri Sanjeevarayar Anjaneya temple at Ayyangarkulam

Close to Kanchipuram I happened to see this dilapidated temple for anjeneyar alone. This is a very rare temple
How to Reach:
On the Kanchi Vandavasi road after about 2 kms take a left towards arcot, kalavai and in about 3 kms you can see the templeIMG_0102
Searching on the net I found this history of this temple .click here to see the history of the temple
The temple is crumbling . It has a main sanidhi for anjeneyar and there are many pillars on the outside corridor which has about 80 different anjeneya sculptures!!. There is a huge pond behind the temple .IMG_0121 IMG_0103 IMG_0105  IMG_0107  IMG_0112
