Beechupally Anjaneya Swamy Temple





Beechupally is one of the famous shrines for the god Hanuman (Anjaneya Swamy). It is located on the banks of Krishna River at about 30 kilometers downstream after Jurala Project in JOGULAMBA GADWAL district, Telangana.

The shores of Krishna River at this location are noted for carrying out obsequies to the departed souls as per the Hindu custom.

The development of the shrine has been augmented by the passage of national highway (NH7) through the village. A road bridge built in 1950s helped trading between Telangana and Rayalaseema regions of the Andhra Pradesh. The bridge was one of the first connections between central/north India and south India.

Initially, the shrine consisted a Hanuman temple about 200 meters away from the river and a Shiva lingam temple near the river. During the rainy season, the water flow becomes high enough to touch the Shiva lingam temple. A temple for Lord Rama was also built in the area in 1992. For the convenience of devotees, several ghats were built for pushkara snanam, a sacred bath that takes place every 12 years. Since then its development continued to expand. In 2004 pushkaras, the shrine was developed with greater facilities making it one of the major places for pushkara snanam.

Lord Hanuman is one of the key deities in Hinduism and is worshipped by all in the Kalyug. He is the 11th avatar of Lord Shiva. That is why Lord Anjaneya is praised to be the living of God of the universe.

While there are uncountable number of temples of Lord Anjaneya in India, but some of these temples are very unique and believed to have divine power, and hence people visit them in millions. Also known as Mahavir and Sri Anjaneya Swamy, Hanuman is believed to be the living God of the Universe and is believed to solve the problems of the people immediately proving right the name given ‘SankatMochan Hanuman’.
