Thanks giving:
  When Sri Hanuman began his mission in search of Mother Sita, Lord Rama gave him flakes (Aval in Tamil) for his food on his way. Remembering this incident, Aval is offered as nivedhana. The faith is that this offer ensures success to the devotees in their endeavours. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

Sri Hanuman is a rare breed of devotees dedicated to the service of Sri Rama which alone was the law of his life.  He expected nothing in return for his services in searching Mother Sita.  His life is an illustration of the Gita Vakya-lines, “Karmanyevadhikaraste, mapaleshu Kathachana.”  He was the abode of all the noblest divine qualities coupled with an unparallel physical and mental prowess to conquer any situation of any gravity.  But he himself was not aware of his extraordinary abilities.  He never spoke to anybody about his powers but simply felt and said that he was born for the service of Sri Rama.  He was only saying that he was the last servant of the Lord.


It may be noted that Sugriva got back his kingdom for the service he rendered to the Lord.  Angatha was nominated as the heir-apparent of Kishkinda.  Vibishana was crowned the king of Lanka.  Hanuman expected nothing.  He respectfully declined to accept the pearl chain offered to him by Mother Sita.  Sri Rama could not find anything that would be a fitting reward to him.  Rama finally asked him to embrace Him – “Ennai Thazhuvuga” – Kambaramayanam - and blessed him eternity.


Hanuman begged Rama to protect every one who prayed to him as if praying the Lord directly.  Writing Sri Rama Jayam and chanting the Rama Nama please Sri Hanuman.


He was the soul of Rama in His mission to establish dharma.  Hanuman was born on the new moon today.  Worshipping him on this day brings immense benefits to the devotee.  Respected as an incarnation of Lord Shiva, Hanuman was born to Vayudeva and Anjanadevi and is also known by the names, Bhavanasudha, Bhavanakumara, Mahaveera, Marudsudha, Anjaneya and Bajrangbali.

  Temple History:

The Anjaneya temple in Alathiyur in Kerala was established by Sage Vasishta many centuries ago.  Sri Rama appears alone without Mother Sita in the sanctum sanctorum.  Sri Hanuman graces in the other shrine listening to Sri Rama telling him the identities of Mother Sita to help him spot her without any doubt.  All the Devas contributed all their might to Hanuman to enable him to succeed in his mission.


There is a shrine for Sri Lakshmana a little away showing that he did should not disturb the privacy between Rama and Hanuman when the former was narrating  some past incidents to Hanuman to identify Mother Sita.
