History of Ragigudda Anjaneyaswamy Temple

The temple was founded in 1969 and registered in 1972, and its formulation has a fascinating mythological background. The legend goes to say that the temple’s chief deity was created with a heap of Ragi millet grains and thus it came to be known as Ragigudda-‘ Ragi ‘ meaning millet and’ Gudda’ meaning hill. At about the same time, the holy trinity of Hindu ism-Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma decided to stay close to the same top of the hill and so they changed into rocks near the temple premises. The rocks now bear engravings and are open to the public.
