Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple, Coimbatore
Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple is an ancient temple situated in the outskirts of Coimbatore & it is located on the Anaikatty highway. Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple is one of the religious shrines in the region.
Swayambumurthi presiding deity and the five mango holy trees were washed away by nature’s fury in the year 1957. The new temple was built then in 1969 and consecration celebrated. The temple is 1 km far from the foot hills with 500 steps. Idumban shrine is before the hill temple.
While passing through this hill with the Sanjeevi mount, Sri Anjaneya felt thirsty. He prayed to Lord Muruga here for water. Lord punched a place here with His Vel from where water sprang up and flowed as a river.
This shows that Muruga worship was n vogue even during Valmiki’s period. There are also 2 mentions about the velocity of the arrow of Rama as that of Muruga’s Vel.
The word Hanu stands for Sri Anjaneya. Vavi in Tamil means water resource. Hanuvavi means a water source that appeared for Hanuman-Anjaneya. In days that followed the name changed as Anuvavi. As Kumara-Muruga helped Hanuman, the hill is also praised as Hanumakumaran Malai. Malai in Tamil means hill.
