Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the Yantrodharaka Hanuman Temple receives its call from the picture of Hanuman positioned internal an amulet. The function of Hanuman isn't the same as another image of Lord Hanuman that can be discovered in Hampi. This temple is the second maximum important shrine devoted to Lord Hanuman in Hampi. According to some legends, this temple is built on the vicinity wherein Hanuman and Lord Ram met for the first time. Others consider that Sri Vyasaraja used to hope to Lord Hanuman on this area by drawing an image of Lord Hanuman on the rocks.
By the time he completed his prayers, the photograph could have disappeared. When this occurred for 12 days in a row, he pleaded with Lord Hanuman to seem before him. When the Lord regarded, he requested Sri Vyasaraja to constrain him in a six-sided amulet and construct a temple inside the area. The Anjaneya Temple is located on a hill at the banks of the Tungabhadra River. The inner sanctum contains an picture of Lord Hanuman enclosed inside a hexagonal amulet. Hanuman has been pictured in a meditative state. This is a marked deviation from different depictions of Lord Hanuman.
