Get - Well Anjaneyar Temple- Tirunelveli , Tamilnadu

Today is Hanuman Jayanthi in Tamilnadu. I think this post on Ajaneya is apt one for the occasion.

Get Well Anjaneya temple is a small but very famous temple in Tirunelveli. The temple was built inside a hospital 'Get Well hospital' for the benefit of the patients who could seek His blessings. But the Anjaneya became so popular here and the hospital became non functional. The idol here thus came to be known as Get Well Anjaneya.( this information as received from the locals, But the hospital still exists there.)
The idol here is just 2-3 feet high.  It is made of Saligrama stone. The eyes sparkle and one can really feel the positive vibrations inside the temple. The idol is decked with various Alakarams. These alakarams are made with silk,butter, sandal paste, Vadamalai, fruits etc.Check a few images here from the Hindu devotional blog.
Presently  Mahalakshmi is also enshrined here. 
This temple is situated right inside the town very close to town bus stand.
