Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the Yantrodharaka Hanuman Temple gets its call from the picture of Hanuman placed inner an amulet. The position of Hanuman is different from another image of Lord Hanuman that can be observed in Hampi. This temple is the second maximum crucial shrine committed to Lord Hanuman in Hampi.
According to a few legends, this temple is constructed on the area wherein Hanuman and Lord Ram met for the first time. Others believe that Sri Vyasaraja used to hope to Lord Hanuman on this region by means of drawing a photograph of Lord Hanuman at the rocks. By the time he completed his prayers, the photograph would have disappeared. When this happened for 12 days in a row, he pleaded with Lord Hanuman to seem earlier than him. When the Lord seemed, he asked Sri Vyasaraja to constrain him in a six-sided amulet and construct a temple within the location.
