Anjanadri Betta is considered as the birth place of Lord Hanuman, at its summit is a temple dedicated to Anjaneya and his mother Anajana. On this beautiful hill live our Lord's kith and kin. I could see two types of monkeys- the smaller red-face monkeys and the bigger black-face monkeys. The latter is usually known as Langur. At the summit are the smaller variety. As Pushpa described, they keep to themselves bothering no one. During our visit we spent close to 45 minutes at the summit and had a good time seeing monkey antics.
Here's a monkey couple, they seemed to be a dedicated pair. The female was physically challenged, it had no hands. As I wondered how it managed on these rocks.. it demonstrated its ability to jump and balance on steep rock faces. Its confidence was no less than any other monkey. She was lively creature too, playing mischief with her mate.
Anjanadri Betta and all three visits were on Saturdays, the day of Lord Hanuman.
