 Greatness Of Temple:
     
  6 feet tall Sri Veera Anjaneya appears majestically in standing posture, just ready to fly, with his face towards North where stood the Sanjeevi Mount, while the body faces east.  His right leg is firm on the ground while the left is ready to fly.  One of hands shows the Abhaya Mudra – assuring protection to the devotee.  The left is on the hip.  There is a bell at the end of the tail raised above the head.  There is the Lotus symbol on His Naval.
Lord Vinayaka graces from His shrine at the foot of the hill.  There are 108 steps to reach the Gajagiri hill where the temple stands.
For Mother Sita every place is Ayodhya where Lord Sri Rama is present.  So, Sri Rama is present where Hanuman is present.  He has His shrine opposite to that His Bhakta in this hill temple.  The story that Sri Hanuman flew and brought the Sanjeevi Parvatha to restore Lakshmana to life, is popular among us.
It is believed that Sage Vyasa established 108 temples for Sri Hanuman.  Based on this belief, the hill temple has 108 steps.  The Pudupakkam temple is closely linked with Lord Sri Nityakalyana Perumal in Tiruvidanthai, one of the 108 Divyadesas of Lord Perumal.
 
     
  Temple History:
     
  Sri Anjaneya is the only person who visited Lanka thrice.  The first was on a mission searching Mother Sita.  He met Her in the Ashoka Garden of Ravana in his land, identified Himself with the Kanayazhi – the wedding ring She gave to Sri Rama and received Her Choodamani to prove to Rama that he had met His consort.  In this first visit, He also played the role of a wise diplomat to pursue Ravana to hand Her over to Sri Rama with all honour.  As the Lanka King was unrelenting, He showed His might by setting ablaze his city.
The second was the march of the army, building of the Sethu bridge and reaching Lanka with Lord.  The third was his departure from Lanka and return with the Sanjeevi Mount through the air route.
The Rama-Ravana war lasted for 18 months according to Sage Valmiki’s epic.  Many of the famous commanders of Ravana and his brothers laid their lives for him in the war.  Ravana was shaken.  Yet, his son Inderjit promised that he would rebuild the glory of the kingdom by defeating Rama with his martial prowess backed by magic warfare.  He made Lakshmana fall with his arrow applied with serpent Mantra.  Yet, as the incarnation of Aadhisesha, Lakshmana fell only fainted by the power of Indrajit’s Nagasthra.  A herbal remedy was necessary to restore him back to consciousness.  That herbal was available only in the Sanjeevi Parvatha.  Hanuman set out with all his might and returned with the mount itself and Lakshmana awoke sooner the very smell of the herbal touched him.  On his way back, Hanuman just got down to perform his Sandhyavandhana, the evening prayers.  That place was Pudupakkam where Sri Veera Anjaneya temple exists on the Gajagiri hills.
