|Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple, Kakkalur|
Kakkalur is very close to Tiruvallur and those of you who are planning to visit the Vaidya Veera Raghava Perumal Temple or Putlur Angala Parameshwari temple can also visit this very unique and ancient temple.
Vyasarajar, the Raja Guru of Krishna Devaraya and the previous avatar of Sree Raghavendra had installed about 730 Anjaneya statues all around India. All of them are identical in the fact that they are turning towards north, with a lotus flower in one hand, and bell at the end of their tail.
This is one of the Anjaneya Swamy idols that had been installed by Sree Vyasarajar. The small temple was also home to Sree Raghavendra for 14 years while he stayed here and meditated and wrote several verses in praise of his favourite God, Sree Anjaneya Swamy. The temple has a big picture of Sree Raghavendra at the spot where he sat and meditated and also an inscription containing verses he wrote about Kakkalur Veera Anjaneya.

The temple has yet another special characteristic. Just outside, we find that entwined Peepal and Neem trees growing together People stand between the trees and the entrance of the temple, look at Anjaneya Swamy and make a wish and it is believed that from that position whatever wishes are made come true very soon.
