It is because of the vision, devotion and efforts of Konethota Family, that Hanumagiri as a place of worship comes to be a reality today. This great deed seems to us more natural than surprising, considering the fact that he belongs to a family of great moral grounds. He is the son of Late Gutthu Konethota Ramayya Bhat of Ishwaramangala, who was known for his generosity providing education, food and justice to the needful. Also, Dharmashri Prathishthana Ishwaramangala ® has contributed to Hanumagiri.
The monolithic statue of Panchamukhi Hanuman standing at a height of 11 ft., carved out of black stone would not be the only reason for anyone to make a visit to the place, there are carved plaques reciting the glorious story of Ramayana, carvings on rocks and stones facing the lush greenery describing the different episodes of the life of Hanuman, statues of Rama and Hanuman symbolizing their harmonious relation. Therefore this feat stands as an example of the sculptural grandeur of this century.
The episode of Hanuman attaining the Panchamukhi form to go to the Himadri and bring back Dronachala for the treatment of Rama-Lakshmana, the presence of life-restoring medicinal plants like Sanjeevini have been acknowledged by many. This Kshethra’s projects also include the setting up of the ‘Goshaala’, rearing of cows. The present Ramayana and Hanuman Manasa Udyana remind one of Threthaayuga.
