Lord Hanuman at Ramadri

A statue of Lord Hanuman, the simian god from Hindu mythology, (please see it large) can be seen here (far right) standing 40 feet tall, watching over the entrance to Ramadri hill which houses a temple of Lord Rama (of the Ramayana). built by the World Teacher Trust.


Lord Hanuman (aka Anjaneya) is a noble hero and great devotee of Lord Rama and is a symbol of hope, courage, knowledge, and devotion. He is always seen holding a mace (gada) to protect Lord Rama and a picture of him tatooed on his chest. No temple of Lord Rama ever gets built without Lord Hanuman guarding it.
