Ramanjaneya gudda also called as Hanumanthana gudda. means the “Hill of Lord Hanuman”. It is located in Hanumanth nagar, Bengaluru. One of my most favourite places in Namma Bengaluru as well. 

Ramanjaneya gudda is one of the most popular Hanuman temples in the city, this temple in Hanumanth Nagar is famous for its beautiful statue of Lord Ram & Lord Hanuman. Gardens surround the temple add more beauty to the temple. 

About Ramanjaneya Gudda: Constructed in the 1960s by the former chief minister of Karnataka, Kengal Hanumanthaiah. The highlight of the temple is, a nine-metre tall statue of the two deities entwined in an embrace is a striking view set atop the hill and supposedly visible from a distance! The sculpture situated at the helm of the temple instead of the usual spire, is said to be a symbol of love and devotion shared by the gods after the war against Ravana fought side-by-side in Lanka. 

The outer premises of the temple have been converted into a lush park that sees people coming for a morning & evening walk. There’s a story behind these steps even! The stones that line the stairs were sourced from a pond at the temple of Kalyani near Lalbagh, adding another layer of divinity to the pathway. 

Very good place around the city. With its amazing sculpture and the serene vibes of the place, this one’s among the must-visit Hanuman temples in the city.
