Lord Hanuman is the chief and eternal devotee of Sri Rama and he stood by Lord Rama in his endeavor to retrieve Goddess Sita from Ravana. As the name implies all the efforts (Karya) of the devotees, who pray at the Karyasidhdhi Anjaneya temple for his blessings, are fulfilled (Siddhi). Just like helping Lord Rama, Lord Hanuman is ever ready to execute the wishes of his devotees. The Karya Siddhi Hanuman idol in this temple was consecrated at the Sri Ganapathi Sachidananda Ashram premisis. It is a monolythic Anjaneya and it weighs about 200 tonnes. Around 18 sculptors worked to create the sculpture, under the guidance of Subramanya Archar sculptor and they took 10 months to sculpt the sculpture.
Karya Siddhi Anjaneya temple is constructed in an octagon shape and attracts 1000s of devotees everyday. Being inspired by the Poorna Phala samarpana Pooja in the temple, the devotees offer coconuts to Lord Hanuman to favor their wishes.
