Monkey Temple is located on Anjanadri Hill in Anegundi. Believed to be the delivery location of Sri Hanuman, Anjanadri Hill is placed at a distance of 4 km from Hampi. A flight of granite steps takes you to the Monkey Temple that's a small concrete shape and the idol of Hanuman is carved from a granite rock. Near the principle idol, a small shrine for Sri Rama and his consort Sita is found.
Beware of the monkeys around; as the call shows there are many monkeys right here. From the pinnacle of the hill one gets to look Hampi and a number of the history websites. The view of solar set and sun rise from here is magnificent. Other points of interest close to Monkey Temple include Pampa Sarovara Laxmi Temple, Bukka's Aquaduct, Anegondi Fort and Rishyamukha Sarovara. The ideal time to visit this area is from September to February when the temperature right here is not particularly warm. As Anjanadri Hill lies at the northern bank of the river Tungabhadra and really near Hampi, it takes much less than an hour to walk to Monkey Temple from right here. One also can hire a coracle that will take you throughout Tungabhadra River to the bottom of Anjanadri Hill.
