The legend of Sri Panchamukha Hanuman

The legend of Sri Panchamukha Hanuman
The pancha mukha hanuman is rare idol of Hanuman. There are many legends and interpretations to this.
The legend
Lord Hanuman is said to have appeared before Raghavendraswamy in a unique way amalgamating within him the avataras of "varaha, garuda, anjaneya, narasimha and hayagreeva", thus five-headed. Panchamukhi, located on the south bank of river Tungabhadra near Manchala now known as Mantralayam is where Raghavendraswamy performed penance for 12 long years in a cave. In appreciation of his Yoga, Lord Panchamukhi Pranadevaru, Kollahpura Mahalakshmi, Lord Venkateshwara of Tirupati and Kurmavathara gave darshan to him. Then he left for Mantralaya where he entered into Samadhi. A temple has been constructed at the spot where he performed penance known as the Panchamukhi Anjaneyaswamy temple.
The details of Panchamukaa are:
  • East facing Anjaneya to grant humanity Ishta Siddhi.
  • South facing Karala Ugraveera Narasimha to grant humanity Abhista Siddhi.
  • West facing Mahaveera Garuda to grant humanity Sakala Sowbhagya.
  • North facing Lakshmi Varaha to grant humanity Dhana Prapthi.
  • Urdhva Mukha {atop} being Hayagriva to grant humanity Sarva Vidya Jaya Prapthi.

  2. Jai Sree Ram. We all commit sins knowingly and unknowingly.You can ask for forgiveness by reciting the hanuman chalisa . Reciting the opening verses of the Hanuman Chalisa at night at least 8 times helps to remove the sins you may have committed.
