  Temple History:
  Sri Anjaneya of the temple was a pavement deity about 90 year ago on the second platform of Tiruchirapally railway junction.  The railway staff and the passengers used to worship Him.  In the year 1928, when works began to link the railway line of Erode and Nagapattinam, Armsby, the then General Manager of Railway district ordered removal of this Anjaneya.  Though the structure was demolished, they could not remove the idol.  The manager had a dream that night that two trains had derailed at the place where Sri Anjaneya existed.  He rushed to the spot and found his dream true.  But all passengers were safe.  Realizing his folly, he immediately ordered special pujas to Him and immediately allotted a vast space for a temple.  That space was Kallukuzhi.  He also arranged sufficient funds for the temple project.  After completing the temple construction and special pujas, the officials were able to move the idol to the new temple.  This is built in the Kallukuzhi railway staff colony.
About 100 years ago, a passenger alighted at the Tiruchirapally railway station with his luggage.  The idol was in one of his packages.  As the package was heavy, the ticket examiner levied a penalty for the excess weight.  The passenger said that he had no money to pay and offered to leave the package and get it back after paying the charges.  He did not return.  There was no claimant for the package.  On opening the pack, a beautiful idol of Sri Anjaneya was found which devotees installed in the railway platform and began worshipping.  He is now in the Kallukuzhi temple.
