Panchamukha Anjaneya Temple is located in a small village Panchavatee, on Tindivanam highway NH 45A., exactly near Thiruchitrambalam Cross Road, 9 kms away from Pondicherry (Puducherry).
Temple of Sri Panchamukha Anjaneyaswamy (Hanuman) is located in Panchavatee Kshetram, constructed on 12 acres of land.
While return after attending the Kumbabisekam of panchamuga hanuman temple near panrutti, Mr. Santhanam iyyangar (donated temple land) asked Parama Sri Ramani anna (crew member in the chennai nanganallur Anjaneya temple trust) to visit his land, which lies on the way to chennai. Ramani anna also accepted his invitation and went to that land, there only that mirracle happen. After placing his foot on that land Ramani feels the diviness of hanuman and also hanuman ordered to build a temple for him. Construction started on 24th June 1999 and the Panchamukha Sri Anjaneyaswamy’s Vigraham (statue) was installed on 11th June 2003.
In the Indian epic, Ramayana, Panchavatee is the forest area where Rama and his wife, Sita spent some years during their vanavasam.
The 36 feet high gigantic image of Anjaneya (Hanuman) is one of the tallest Hanuman images in India.
This vision of Pachamuga Anjaneya with five faces – his own in the centre, surrounded by Garuda, Hayagreeva, Narasimha and Varaha. Hayagreeva is the horse form of Lord Vishnu, Narasimha the lion and Varaha the boar. In consonance with Hanuman and Garuda, surely, the most mighty manifestation of the godly.
Devotees offers Lord Anjaneya a garland of ulundu vadas, known popularly as Hanumar vadas. The significance behind offering ulundu vada is that ulundu has the property of cooling and is supposed to reduce Anjaneya's ugram and make him beneficent to his devotees.
The other reason is that the vada has ingredients that will please Saneeswaran, Rahu and Ketu. It is believed that devotees of Anjaneya do not get affected by planetary positions. On Saturdays, the day most auspicious for Saneeswaran, there are as many vadamalas which are offered to Anjaneya
