Vasudevaperumal Temple is located in Kadagambadi, Tiruvarur district, Tamil Nadu. This temple is dedicated to Lord Hanuman.
About The Temple
“Renounce the fruits of action” was the teaching of Lord Krishna to His chosen disciple Arjuna. Sri Anjaneya began practicing these teaching millenniums earlier. He served Lord Rama without any expectations. While many seek a place in Vaikunda, the Abode of Lord Vishnu, where Narayana’s Name is dominant, Anjaneya preferred to stay in Earth where Rama Nama is dominant, so sweet to His heart. He only wanted endless longevity to spend his days chanting Rama Nama.
A chola king built this temple on the banks of Arasalaru, a tributary to Cauvery installing Sri Vasudeva Perumal with His consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi. A shrine was built for Sri Bhavya Anjaneya. The temple is in Kadagambadi also known as Sarabojirajapuram.
About The Deity
Sri Anjaneya in the temple appears as a definition to the quality of humility with one had folded and the other (right) covering his mouth.
Special Homa pujas are performed on Moola star days. Masi Laksha Archana is conducted in February-March. Hanumath Jayanthi in December-January and Aani Tirumanjanam are other festivals in the temple.
Special Homa pujas are performed to Sri Anjaneya each month on Moola star day. Laksharchana in the month of Masi (February-March) is performed from Punarvasu star day to Moola star day. Anjaneya may be small in size (Murthi) but His Keerthi (fame) is too big.
Devotees pray to Sri Anjaneya for removal of obstacles in wedding proposals, illness, stress, recovery from fall in business, for child boon, wisdom, health, bhakti, courage, fame, service to Lord and humility.
Devotees perform special Tirumanjanam to Sri Anjaneya and circumambulate the shrine 11 times.
