Vyasarajaru prathisthapana Hanuman

Sri Vyasarajaru pradisthapana Sri Hanuman @ Mulbhagal

Sri Vyasaraja was the favoured and respected Rajaguru of four emperors of historical Vijayanagar empire.  Sri Vyasaraja was also the guru of the likes of Kanakadasaand Purandaradasa. Over five hundred years ago Sri Vyasaraja consecrated 732 idols of Hanuman throughout our bharatha desha.It is of no doubt that he is one of the avatars of Sri Shankukarna(Avatars of Shankukarna are, i) Sri Prahaladharu ii) Sri Bhalika iii) Sri Vyasarajaru iv)Sri Raghavendra Swamy) My dream is to discover the places of all 732 idols of Hanuman with its location so that it would be useful for our devotees to visit. This page is created mainly to serve this purpose. Fortunately, today I had a dream of Sri Vyasarajaru prathisthapana Kakkalur Sri Hanuman devasthana. I consider this as the blessing of Sri Vyasarajaru antharkatha Sri Mukyapranaru antharkatha Sri Lakshmi Narayanaa.

The below are some of the idols which are known to me,

  1. havent you visited the vyasa karachita pranadevaru in and around raichur and bellary districts.? in raichur disrtict we have many vyasa thirtha karachitha pranadevaru

  2. Venky, during our child hood we used to play always Swamiji’s Game, in which I’l be Swamiji and others are Sevakas. We all the boys had installed a small hanuman temple in our home. It temple was just bigger than a small carton box. We named the temple as “Sri Vyasarja Pratishtita Pranadevaru” (And of course we got a lot of dakshine for doing mangalarati.) The temple got demolished in our quarrel, but the icon is still with me.

  3. Sir,
    I thank you for the excellent seva you people are doing to bring together all the Madhvas under one roof.

    • Can we get a little broader in our thinking? Let’s say BRAHMANAS instead of narrowing it down. There is a greater need these days to be united. I mean no offense.

  4. Dear,
    Fisrt of i thank you for gathering this much information ,and one more thing is i try my level to take ashirvada of all prana devaru which u have listed.

    All the best for your future projects.

      • Namaste

        I had a chance to visit this sanjeevi rayar temple in iyangarkulam last thursday. Fortunately since it was amavasya day, they were doing thirumanjanam to the main deity and for the first time I was able to observe vayu putra hanuman idol in closer distance. The tail had winded up above the head in this idol – possibly indicating that this can be one of the 732 prathistapana of Sri Vyasa raja – since all others also follow the same pattern.

        Sarvam Sri Krishnar panamastu


      • i am DR.NARESH FROM CHENNAI VILLIVAKKAM. I CRY EVERY DAY AND FEEL THAt anjeneya is my spritual father and he leads me in life.
        with small blessings and way of life i made a vey small temple called vaidya anjeneyan . it inside our house compund. every sat day i clean him and make him shiny with ghee.
        i love so much my maruthi and i know and tell all that he is still holding his avatar in kaliyug and he is the only one to save us.
        jai maruthy. who ever sees this msg pls bless me to do more. my dream is to make anjeneya idol around 108 ft. i know it is just a dream. but in my dream i stsarted this project.

    • Indeed the famous Sanjeevirayar idol was one of the 732 installed by the great rajaguru Sri Vyasaraja guru sarvabhouma. Sri Vyasarajaru was the rajaguru for the mighty Srikrishadeva raya of Hampi Vijayanagar. Sri Tatachar was a contemporary of Sri Vyasarajaru. Sanjeevirayar idol follows the the pattern of other Vyasa prathista Pranadevaru. The bell at the end of a curled tail of Anjaneya indicates it is Vyasa prathista. Ayyangars have taken this idol and made it as their own by putting namas on the idol face. The idol of Bhasma dhari idol is that of Sriman Madhwacharya. Sri Vyasaraja defeated all the scholars of Adwaitic and Vishistadwaitic following in Kanchi puram and proceeded to install SAnjeevirayar temple near Kanchipuram. Over the years the mischivous Ayyangars and Smarthas have combined to convert the temple as per their own tradition. At that time Sri Vyasaraja was an undisputed scholar in Hinduism.Sri Vyasaraja did puja for Lord Venkateshwara when the immoral Ayyangar priests were using the temple for their private use. This is history and no body can denay it. Vyasaraja was a generous man and handed over Tirupathi temple to the decendents of Ayyangar priests after doing puja for 12 years.

      • when vyasaraja came to Thriupathi, there is no iyyangar priest there. That’s why he carried all pujas for 12 years. Then, he handed over to suitable Iyangar priest..If he thought,he would changed to madwa tradition. but, He didn’t do it. It showed his generous nature. This is real history. Donot twist it and not show hatred towards other sect of Vasinavs.

    • check out shanka chakra stone carved symbols at the entrance pillar or at on either top side of deity itself please

  5. A very useful list of pranadeva temples. Your efforts will be blessed. Thank you !

    I have a question. Have you ever heard of Purana pranadevara temple. (Purana as in pouranika)

  6. Hare Srinivasa

    It is a very useful list. There is another Pranadevaru in Mantralaya Road Station Rayar Matt it is also having Shanka Chakra and all, one more in Baati Near Harihar, Kakol Near Bangalore, Harohalli Farm Near to Kakol around kakol only there are 32 Pranadevaru is there. Sirikola (3 Mantralaya),Honnali
    still many more are there

  7. Hare Srinivasa,
    Very very useful and important information. There is another Pranadevaru in BHADRAVATHI -OUT SKIRTS by the side of State highway(SHIMOGA DISTRICT) called SUNNADAHALLI VEERANJANEYA SWAMY.

  8. As I know from elders in my home town Mulabagilu, Sri Vyasa Tirtharu installed 365 idols of Mukhya Prana from Hampi to Tirupati. The idol with the tail circling on top of Mukhya prana’s head with a small bell is supposed to be the one installed by him.

  9. Sir, Please visit my blog //mukhyaprana.blogspot.com. i have collected around 90 photos of mukhyapranadevaru at different places

  10. Dear brother,
    Good work.

    Please note that there is one Hanumanthaiyya installed by Sri Vyasaraja in Salem’s First Agraharam – Vyasaraja mutt.
    In the recent times, (1985) alongwith the Hanumanthaiyya, Sri Vyasaraja, Sri Jayatheertha and Sri Ragavendra Mruthikka Brindhavanas are also installed.

    May your work continue.


  11. Good to see the list of Hanuman temples. Very good effort. I suggest to add few more.
    1. The famous Banasawadi Anjaneya temple in Banasawadi, Bangalore.
    2. Belagur Anjaneya Temple in Belagur, Kadut Taluk, Chickamagalur District.

    • Mahalakshmi Layout Anjaneya Swamy is not linked to Vyasarajaru at all. I have seen the temple trustees getting the stone carved in early 1970s. Krishna Murthy Rao and N. Lakshman Rau, IAS were the key persons behind this temple and idol. Please remove from this list.

  12. hare srinivasa,
    kudos for giving the list of giving the sri vyasa prathista hanuman.one at harapanahalli called hosahalli hanumappa and next at kellodu in hosadurga tauk and another at shamanur near davangere also belong to same.

  13. hare krishna
    sir there arwe around 10 idols of MUKYAPRANA DEVARU in and around hosur. i think it may be useful to you.

  14. I saw ur website and we had some datas are available at three places in tamilnadu.Three Anjenaya idols are the same charteristics and form. The three anjenaya temples have been installed in the same period by Sri Vyasararajaru and who helped to install the idols by the then Queen Rani Mangammal.
    1.Sri Anjenaya and and Sri Varadharajaperumal Temple at Markayankottai, Theni Dist, Tamilnadu.
    2.Sri Mukyapranaswamy Temple at Genguvarpatti, Theni Dist, Tamilnadu 625203.
    3.Sri Anjenyaswamy temple in the banks of a pond at watrap, Virudhunagar Dist, T

    • I visited the temple at Maarkaiyankottai recently and was informed by the temple Bhattacharya that the Mukhya Pransswamy was installed by Shri Sumatheendra of Raghavendra Mutt and not by Vyasaraja. Shri Sumatheendra installed 5 Anjaneya idols in this part, the other 4 being Genguvarpatti, Watrap, Vellapottai & Aayiradharmam. This was informed to me by the Raghavendra Mutt manager at Markaiyankottai.

  15. Hare Srinivasa

    The collections of vyasaraja Pratistita mukyaPranadevarugalu is an excellent good and very much helPful job for madwas and the same have required hardwork and much Patience as such the madwas are very grateful to you sir./

    There is a Anjaneya Temple located at Mayor Chittibabu Street, Triplicane. The Anjaneya idol is one of the 732 idols installed by Vyasaraja. The temple is situated near Tiruvetteswarar Temple, Triplicane. The anjaneya here is ver small but very powerful and gracious.

  17. Vyasaraja Pratistita mukyaPranadevarugalu in Hyderabad

    people call it as kala hanuman mandir as hanuman is smeared with sindoor in non madhva hanuman temples
    as it does not require daily abhishekam etc black idols require regular abhisheka etc

  32. Namaskara,
    There is a Anjaneya Temple in Puttenahalli J P Nagar 7th Phase, Bangalore, The archik says that the temple is 500 yrs old & Sri Vyasarajaru had done penance there. I have visited it couple of times recently,though not fully developed, there is a sense of attraction in the idol & it also has a bellin the tail some believeitis one among Sri Vyasarajara 732 idols.Please verify or validate as this is heard from the archik & devotees.

  33. Out of the 732 idols of Hanuman consecrated by Sri Vysarayaru, about 350 are said to be in PENUKONDA, Antantapur (Dt). Unfortunately now we can find a few of them .The Hanuman Temple at the Uttara dwara (at the main entrance to the town) one of the biggest pratimas, is quite interesting to watch.
    About 4 K.M. from Hindupur, Anantapur(dt) A.P. in Sugur, there is one idol of Hanuman, consecrated by Sri Vysarayaru.
    Near to Hiindupur, in Santebidanur, also there are Hanuman Idols consecrated by Sri vysarayaru.

  34. Sri Jeevuraya Mukhyaprana devaru Temple, Baguru, Hosadurga Taluk, Karnataka, Many people spell it wrongly and because of that it is unknown to people, This temple is near by chennakeshava swamy temple which is very famous and approximately around 700-800 years old

    • Dear Sir,

      Kindly give details about how to reach this place from Hosur and also the temple opening timings and if possible, contact nos. of priest. Thanks in advance.

  36. Hi,
    A village known as “Mavinakaihalli” in Gouribidnaur Taluk, Karnataka.
    This is a kilometer from the statehighway that goes from Chickaballapur to Gouribidnur via Manchenahalli. The bustop on main road is shown as “Nagenhalli” Pura P.O.
    A sri.Vyasarja prathistitha Hanuman temple. Recently they renoveated the temple and now it very good place. Archak Sri. Srinvasa is performingth poojas.

    Please add to the list.


    • Visited the above Pranadevaru temple yesterday along with six other temples. The Archak was kind enough to open the temple though it was Dwadashi and he was resting at home. Did the Archane and gave us Panchamruta. He also guided us to another Vyasa Pratishtitha Pranadevaru at a village called Dwaraganahalli (about 3 kms). The temple Jeernodhara is being done by by a Madhva family (Nagaraj Achar) they are looking for financial assistance to complete the temple.

  37. One more vyasaraja prathistitha hanuman in tiptur, tumkur dist. the address is near “kodi circle”, kote,tiptur,tumkur dist pin 572201

  38. Hi,
    Recently I visited Sri Mukhyaprana Devaru on the way to Cheekalaparavi(birth place of Sri Vijayadasaru) from Manvi (Place of Sri Jagannath Dasaru).
    This place is around 4 km from Manvi, Raichur district, by auto.
    Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy performed Chaturmasya Vratha in this temple.
    There is also a story associated with this place.
    When Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy was performing Chaturmasya Vratha in this place, a person came to that place who was Sri Kanaka dasa in his previous incarnation.
    Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy identifies this person to be Sri Kanaka dasa through his powers as Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy in his previous incarnation was Sri Vyasa rajaru – Guru of Sri Kanaka dasaru.
    Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy calls this person and asks him “Kanaka, what have you brought ?”
    The person replies that he has got mustard seeds with him.
    One thing to observe his that mustard seeds are not used during Chaturmasya Vratha in all the Mutts.
    At this moment, Guru Shri Raghavendra Swamy accepts the mustard seeds from the person as the person was identified as Sri Kanaka Dasaru, his disciple in the previous incarnation and started using the mustard seeds even during the Chaturmasya Vratha and is followed even today in Rayara Mutt.

  39. Hello,

    I would like to add one more temple of Sri Mukhyaprana devaru which is located in Santhebidanur which was installed first by Janamejaya and later got re-installed by Sri Vyasarajaru.
    This is roughly around 100kms from Bangalore.


  41. Hi,, Dasa Anjaneya swamy famously known as Kala HANUMAN near Attapur HYDERABAD is first installed by Janmejaya and later re-installed by Sri Vyasarajaru. This dakshin mukhi Hanuman has Shankha,Chakra on either side of him representing Vishnu avtara.

  42. hello sir thanks you so much v got lot of information about human temples by you and do u know mr.vijayendrarao form bangalore who did a cd which had collection of vysaraja prathistitha anjaneya i wanted contact details if u know pls reply thanks again

  43. I would like the author to add one more anjaneya to the list, pratisthapana by vyasarajaru called Sri Sanjeeva Raya near manvi enroute chikalparvi, Raichur district karnataka. where Sri Raghavendra Swamy performed his second chaturmasya.

  44. Great work on collecting this very important information. Here is another possible temple to explore and ascertain its origins:

    There is a Prana Devuru Vigraha of great antiquity in a temple on Temple street, Agara, HSR layout Bangalore. This temple is opposite to Kashi Vishanatha Temple. This temple, in particular, is right behind the recently consecrated giant size Hanuman statue, which hardly anyone cannot but notice, on outer ring road (ORR) Bangalore. Sri Prana devuru here has striking similarity to the Sri Vyasarajaru pradisthapana Sri Hanuman at other locations on this site.

    The temple is open only on Saturday mornings. There is a old priest who comes to worship in the temple from a different location. He told that his ancestors used to worship the deity over the centuries in its original location. The original location of the temple was someplace else near Bangalore, which is now owned by Indian military for shooting range practice. In order that no harm occurs to the Vigraha, Indian Government shifted the Vigraha some time back in the 1960s or 1970s to its present location.

    I used to regularly visit this temple on the weekends two years back. Only now, after seeing the pictures of other locations in this site, the similarity struck me. I am wondering maybe someone with expertise can ascertain if this is also one of the possible pratishtapana of Sri Vyasa Rajaru.

  45. Hello,

    Thanks for the initiative to locate all the Mukhyaprana Temples consecrated by his holiness Vyasarajathirta.

    There is a pretty old Anjaneya temple in our Village – Doddankanahalli in Maddur Taluk of Mandya District. Elderly folks claim it to be around 500-600 yrs old. The Idol of deity is very similar to the others installed by Sri Vyasarajaru. There are some stone inscriptions besides the temple, which are probably in halegannada (old Kannada).
    A scholarly review of these inscription might confirm if the deity is actually installed by his holiness Chandrikacharya.

  46. there is one place where vasyarayaru has installed prana devaru in sugatta village near hunse marenhalli on the outskirts of Bangalore city on the way to Bangalore international airport

  47. Recently I had been to Ganjigunte near Chintamani Chikabalapur Dist, I saw Pranadevaru Temple having Pranadevaru Prathistapana by VyasaRajaru

  48. I am very much delighted to say that I am a native of nadidadada anjaneya of hanasoge along with ancient rayara brindavana about 250 years on the banks of sacread river cauvery. now jeernodara of rayara mutt is being carried out under the reg trust banner HANASOGE GRMABHIVRUDHI TRUST& nearing completion. I nvite hari vayu gurugala bhaktas to have the anugraha of rayaru on the forth coming aradhana celeberations.

  49. Hari sarvottama , Vaayu jeevottama.. namaskars i would like to get a list of the places in INDIA where all the Thirtas of Madhwa Philosophy have settled.. i.e where are all the brindavans?

  50. hello,
    it is indeed a great deed u’ve have been doing.
    i’wd like to add some more from Belgaum dist.
    1. Sri Maruti devasthan Sunnal. 5 k.m. away from Ramadurga
    2. Sri maruti devasthana. Kalloli tal. Gokak
    3. Sri. Maruti devasthana. Kulgod tal. Gokak
    There are many more. as and when i come across any other i will render the service.

  51. Happy to see the list of Vyasaraja pratistapitha pranadevaru. Recently i saw vyasaraja teertharu installed haunan temple near Sunnadahalli (Shimoga dt), It is around 14 kms from shimoga called Udda Anjaneya swamy temple. Very beautiful, wonderful mammoth statue.

  52. great work ,
    i would suggest u to add 1 more to the list
    sri madalagatti anjaneya ,12 kms away from hoovina hadagali,bellary dist

  53. one more anjaneya temple at KADAGATHUR MADHUGIRI TALLUK TUMAKUR DIST. It is the border village of karnataka and andhra. the diety is same as in another vyasa raja pratiste. Long tile with a bell on the top of the head and small shanku and chakra on both sides. The place is very near to Santhebidanuru(Andhrapradesh) Sree Rama Navami utsavam celebrated as Janma navarathri from Sreerama navami.

    Hare Sreenivasa

  54. hare sreenivasa,
    one more vyasraja pratistitha Mukya pranadevaru at Kadagathuru, Madhugiri Talluk, Tumukur dist. It is a boarder village for Karnataka. It is one mile from Santebidanuru in Andhrapradesh Hindupur talluk.


  56. Namaskara,
    My mane devaru is “Sri Konchur Bala Bheema sena devaru”. The temple of sri pranadevaru is located about 20 kms from Yergol where Sri Jayatirtharu wrote the Tikas and about 9 kms from Wadi in Gulbarga District. The temple priests tell me that the idol is about 800 years old. It is similar to Vyasa Pratishtapana idols as you have mentioned above so maybe this idol belongs to the above category. There was an old temple which is now in ruins and a new temple was constructed in 2007. Punahpratishtapane of the idol was done by Sri Satyatmateertharu of Uttaradhi mutt.

  57. I recently visited the chakrapani temple & worshipped a Hanuman consecrated by Sri Vyasaraja Guru. We have a Madhwa Aachar doing the Pooja there & he confirmed the fact. The Bell on the tail also confirms the same. Please check & include this also in your list.

  58. there is an anjeneyar temple in cuddalore town near gadilam river. It also has the same features of tail.


  60. Namaskara Sir,

    While I know that you are collecting the list of our beloved guru Sri Vyasaraja Theertha krutha Vayu devaru details, I would like to add these list

    1, In Cheyyar, Opp: to Bus Stand one In Gally road named Samaathyan Kulam ( Actually It is Sampaathiyan Kulam, Sampathi of Ramayana Kala) one Sri Vijayaraghavar Ramar Koil is there. Within temple premises Sri Vyasaraja krutha Vayu Devaru is there. It defintely have the Anga Lakshana of Ganta, Sowgandhi puspha , Sikai are there. I went for a Sri Rama Navami Purapaadu and this Vayu devaru had shown me blessing.

    2. In Patteeswaram, near Kumbakonam ( Where famous Sri Durga, Nandhi gave way to Sri Gnanasambhar to see Sri Rudra from Rajagopura itself, Sri Parvathi Hugg Sri Rudra when he came to test as fire Thazhuvakulainda nathar, Sri Sakthimutra Pulavar’s home town ) one temple called Kona Perumal ie Gopinatha Krishnan Koil is there. There Irattai Anjaneyars ( see Photo below) are there. WIth the Anga Lakshanas of Shikai , Sowganthi Pushpas we can well conclude these can also be Sri Vysaraja Krutha Vayu Devaru. Though I studied and lived in that village for about 6 years in early ’80s, I never visited, where in I used to cross atleast 4 to 5 times an year this old damaging temple, while we go for Swamimalai in short cut road. That was my dhurbagya! But today I come across this and want to record through your noble service for future.

  61. Pranams,
    There is one more Vyasaraja pratishtitha Lord Hanuma temple at a place called Maachavaram in Vijayawada, Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh. Just opposite temple one can see a board stating the history of the temple in brief. the temple is run by some Ayyangar(Vishishtaadvaitin) priest.



  62. Hare srinivasa, shri gurubhyo namaha
    There is a famous pranadevara temple in Banasawadi, bengluru. Thought the folk tale there is different, but the idol vigraha is in the typical Vasarayara prathistitha Pranadevaru. Tail raising above, face to the side.
    I am an ardent devotee of this temple and have personally seen and experienced life changing instances due to the grace of pranadevaru. Everything I am today is due to his grace. If not of Pranadevaru, I cannot imagine where I would be.


  63. We have found one HAnumar at Vasanampalli near Ambur in Tiruvannamalai District and the same is now being cleaned and restored, along with the telugu inscription – period 1532, naming SadasivaRaya for giving grant to the once existed temple. From REACh Foundation, with the great donation of Shri Babdu and their whole family who have ancestoral property there, we are rebuilding the temple to match the old style and agama soon. Those who wish to visit and join the temple re-building can write back to us: reach.foundation.india@gmail.com.

  85. Dear sir,
    There is a temple in bangalore, Halsuru Someshwara temple, It is an oldest temple. There is a separate temple for hanuman, My friend told me it is almost looking like Pranadevaru, Nobody knows about the origin of the idol. So I guess it would be Mukya Pranadevaru which might have installed by guru vysaraja. Please help us figure out.

  86. Sir in my village one more vyasaraya installed hanuman idol is here thats name was SRI MADHVEERANJANEYA TEMPLE in Shivanagere MADHUGIRI taluk TUMKUR DISTRICT 572112 my cell num 9916487899 near 60 kms to tumkur

  87. Last year there was a report in the paper that a dilapidated temple of sri Vunugopalaswamy temple along with a intact brindavana at Karuvalur, near Avinashi in Tiruppur Dist. and later went unnoticed. Recently myself along with my friends to initiative to discover the same. Though the temple is in ruins the mantapa infront of the temple is in tact with a big stupa and in the centre with the sculpture of SRI ANJANEYA. It resembles in all respect the characteristics of SRI VYASARAJARU INSTALLED ANJANEYA. The ruined temple is named as sri venugopala temple. Near to it a temple for anjaneya named as ANUMANTHARAYAN KOIL witha good tank with water. However the original statue is missing but the local people have installed a new Anjaneya and renovated it and named it as Jaya Maruthi koil. I have posted all the details in my timeline in facebook. Kindly go through it to confirm that it belongs to one among the 732 anjaneya. since it may be done during or later sri vyasarajaru or his sishyas. The Brindavana is confirms with all the aspects of madhva yethigalu but could not ascertain from which linage it belongs. In my opinion it must be that of one among the 24 sishyas of sri Vyasarajaru. .Since you have made a lot of contribution to our sidhantha i request or any of the followers of SriAnandatheertha can shed their opinion to get the details to complete this mission. Regards
