Sri Bedi Anjaneya Swamy Temple

 Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswamy

The temple of Sri Bedi Anjaneya swamy facing the Maha dwaram of Sri Venkateswara shrine. It may also be noted that every time after neivedyam is offered to Lord Srinivasa and Varahaswamy, the neivedyam is brought to  this temple.
As per the vaishnavite customs, either Anjaneya or Garuda is situated opposite to the main temple. Sri Anjaneya is devotee of Sri Rama while Garuda is for Sri Maha Vishnu. Accordingly, in Tirumala, Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswami is seen opposite to the temple.
The legend says that this Anjaneya did not believe Lord Venkateswara as an Incarnation of Maha Vishnu and Lord Rama was His God. Then Lord Vekateswara gave darshan in the form of Lord Rama and disappeared. Repenting for his ignorance, Sri Anjaneyaswami folded his hands and put "Bedi"to his hands. Hence, He is called as "Bedi Anjaneyaswamy".
Abhishekam for Sri Anjaneya is performed every Sunday and special offerings/poojas are celebrated on Hanumath Jayanti."
Devotees, after taking the darshan of Lord Venkateswara, make a point to visit this temple and seek blessings of this God also.
