Panchamukha Hanumadeeswara Temple

The most sacred place of Surendrapuri is on the northeast, where one can find the temple complex. The main door of the Panchamukha Hanumadeeswara and Venkateswara Devasthanam is carved with the figures of the main presiding deities with all beauty, grandeur and splendor. At the entrance of the temple are Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara, the causative trinity of creation, sustenance and dissolution by the serpent Gods.

The ‘Gopuras’ of the temple are shaped as the cultural amalgamation of North & South Indian architecture. The construction is done in accordance with ‘vastu’ and ‘Agama shastra’. The 16 feet Panchamukha Hanuman idol situated in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple is exquisitely chiseled out of the black stone specially brought from kanchi. The Panchamukha Hanuman on his own volition, stays at this holy place in visible form and receives the oblations of the devotees.
