His Visit to Machavaram

As Sri Vyasatheerthulu was touring along with his disciples on foot, they halted at Indra Kiladri and relaxing. Lord Maruti appeared in the form of vanara and got them up and gave indication to follow him. They all did so and crossed over mountains and forests and reached the present place of Machavaram.

Vyasatheerthulu. About one hundred and fifty years ago, a contractor Sri Dunna
Veeraswamy Naidu was constructing Eluru – Vijayawada road. During that time Lord
Anjaneya gave him a divine direction by appearing in his dream to excavate the idol
from a particular place. Sri Naidu proceeded to the site indicated by Lord Anjaneya in his
dream, with his laborers for digging work. A small excellent divine idol form with
Sindhoora decoration was excavated from the very same place where a peepal tree was
existing. He had arranged for a thatched shed then and there for facilitating the darshan
to devotees. Earlier to temple construction the peepal tree was providing pleasant
shelter at the place and that very same tree is still alive and could be seen.

had been fulfilling the desires of the devotees with his
blessings.

Vijayawada throng for darshan, especially on Tuesday.
The temple is located 6 km from Central bus stand of Vijayawada, and 5 km from

panchavimsati, in praise of Sri Dasaanjaneya Swami of this kshethra.
machavara vasa sathakoti manmatha vilasaa
kasari putra hanumantha keerthimantha ||
Though Lord Anjaneya’s murthi(idol) of the kshethra is small, kirthi is great,
and a visit to this kshethra can bring peace, love and lot of inspiration.
