Hanuman Spoke Britisher Repairs Hanuman Temple Grand Anicut Kallanai

I have written on how Deities/Gurus spoke to people.

God does not have Religion.

Madurai Meenakshi spoke to a Britisher and saved him.

His Grave faces the temple so that he see Her even after death!

Raghavendra swamigal spoke to Britishers.

These were recorded.

Now I came across information that Hanuman temple was repaired by a Britishers.

Read on

This temple is located right inside the Kallanai or Grand Anaicut dam across Kaveri in TamilNadu. It was supposed to be built by an English Captain J.L.Calddell in 1804.

The incident goes like this. The dam was undergoing repairs under Captain J.L.Calddell. The 19th vent could not be repaired how much ever they tried. The engineer had a dream in which Sri Anjaneya asked him to build a temple for him near the 19th vent and that he would protect it. The engineer ignored it and in a few days a group of monkeys attacked him. Then the same dream came for the Mason who reported it to the engineer.When they dug the spot, they recovered an idol of Sri Hanuman which can be seen in the temple now.

There is a stone, in one corner of the temple as a record of this fact to with a note “Repaired this colling LHA & Erected the 26s upright stones by Cap. J.L.Calddel AD 1804”. Below this there is a note in Tamil stating that the stone is erected as per the orders of the Government.

  1. I echo your thoughts. God doesn’t belong to a religion in specific. I feel serving humans in need is the best way to serve the Lord. For example, if I provide food to a little poor girl, that should earn me more brownie points than donating 1000 bucks to some Temple charitable trust.
