Legend has it that Hanuman, the chief deity installed at the Alathiyur Hanuman Temple, was placed by Sage Vashista (one among the authors of the Rig Veda) over 3,000 years ago. This ancient temple is dedicated to Lord Sree Rama and Bharatha, from the epic Ramayana. It is an ode to Hanuman’s devotion to Lord Rama and devotees flock in great numbers to pay homage to this sacred bond. Naivedyam (holy food) and Aval (flattened rice) constitute special offerings at the temple.
