Sanjeeva Raya Hanuman

Anjaneya as Sri Sanjeeva Raya has been blessing devotees at Vontimitta in YSR Kadapa district.

Usually, the idol of Hanuman stays alongside Sri Rama in the sanctum of every temple dedicated to Lord Rama. But the unique feature is, the Sanjeeva Raya temple is located opposite Vontimitta Kodanda Ramalayam.
