Karnataka govt mulls to develop Anjanadri Hill on lines of Ayodhya
The BJP-led Karnataka government will soon commence developing the Anjanadri Hill which is believed to be the birthplace of Shri Hanuman in the Koppal district of the state at a cost of Rs.140 crore.
The Karnataka government initially announced Rs.100 crore for the development and now the allocation has been increased to Rs.140 crore. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is to lay the foundation stone at Anjanadri Hills in a grand function on February 15, 2023, according to sources.
The government is also ensuring airport connectivity, super specialty hospital in the backward district. Six hundred residential structures, parking, and the information center will also be set up at Anjanadri Hill.
The decision in this regard had been taken in the meeting held by the Minister for Tourism Anand Singh. Once the Ayodhya Shri Ram temple is built, most of the Hindu pilgrims, who visit the Shri Ram temple are expected to visit the birthplace of Shri Hanuman.
The move comes against the backdrop of Maharashtra and Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Trust of Andhra Pradesh stating that the Anjanadri Hills located in their respective states are the real birthplace of Lord Hanuman.
However, lakhs of devotees have been visiting the Hills in Karnataka for hundreds of years and believe that it is the birthplace of Shri Hanuman. Historians and priests have given references in sacred books to mention the Anjanadri Hill of Karnataka region as the birthplace.
The Karnataka government is also mulling the development of Ramadevarabetta (Bhagwan Shri Ram’s hill) in Ramnagar district of the state as the second Ayodhya. It is believed that Ramadevarabetta is built by Sugreeva (a character in Ramayana).
