About the temple :
The environment of the temple is pleasing and very silent. It is surrounded by lots of fresh greenly trees, which gives us cold breeze. The Perumal - Sri Hanuman is stamping his foot on Sani Bhagavan and this is one of the special postures Sri Hanuman gives. Before knowing about the temple, let us know about an interesting story about Hanuman and Sani bhagavan.
During the time of Sri Rama - Ravana war, with the arrow, Lakshmanan was made anesthetic and all stood in silence without knowing what to do. At that time, the bear (Jambhavan) said that with the help of Sanjeevini herbal, his anesthetic could be cured and sent Hanuman to get that. Getting the grace from Sri Ramar, Hanuman flew to get the Sanjeevini herbal. On seeing this, Sukrachariyar, the Kula guru of Ravana, thought if Hanuman would get the Sanjeevini, then Lakshmanan and all the other Vanara Senai in the troop will regain their lost power and so he thought Hanuman should be stopped.
On thinking this, he sent Sani, one among the Navagrahams to catch hold of Hanuman, so that he could not get the Sanjeevini herbal. Hanuman, after a long search, finally got the Sanjeevini herbal and took the entire mountain instead of taking some herbals. While returning, he was stopped by Sani and said that he was sent by Ravanan to stop him. On hearing this, Hanuman was very angry on the act of Ravanan and chanting the great Rama Nama, Hanuman stamped Sani with one of his legs. Finally with lots of efforts, Sani apologized that he has come wrongly to catch him and asked him to set him free. During that time, on seeing the state of Sani, Hanuman left Sani and ordered that he should not catch any of the bhaktas who chant the great Sri Rama Nama and who worship him. Not even this, even the sight of Sani should not fall on them. As asked by Hanuman, Sani gave the promise what Hanuman asked for and finally, Hanuman freed Sani. And, then Hanuman came along with the Sanjeevini and Lakshmanan and all got their energies and power and had the victory over Ravanan.
This is the history that is told about this temple and a huge sanctum of Hanuman, about 11 feet height with Sani being stamped is found.
Bhaktas who are much affected by Sani can visit this sthalam and lit the Deepam and can do Apprathakshanam (round in anti-clockwise direction) for 9 times This will minimize the effect of Sani on us. And lots of bhaktas have found a positive result by visiting this sthalam.
