Hanumagiri stands amidst Udupi and Dakshina Kannada famously called Tulu naadu particularly in a place called Ishwaramangala, located 5 kms south of Sullia. Lying in the border of Paduvannur and Nettanige Mudnur villages, this place of Hanuman has been named Hanumagiri.
It goes without saying that that Hanuman plays a vital role in the Ramayana, what with his bringing of the Sanjivini parvatha from the Himalayas for the forming of the sea-bridge. Though later the mountain was not utilized for the bridge, it was installed on Vajragiri according to Lord Ram’s wishes, and it is also to be noted that the southern hill ranges like Kodachadri and Brahmagiri formed when Hanuman brought the Govardhanagiri from the Himalayas. This Hanumagiri is also said to be a part of the same sacred hill, and it is for the same reason that this place of worship has come up today.
