Located about 1 km. south of Hanumagiri are Shri Panchalingeshwara Kshethra and Poomaani Kinnimaani Daiva Kshethra, 2 kms south-west is Kuthyalapaade Shri Mahavishnu temple, 6 kms south-east is Padumale Shri Koove Shastaara Vishnumoorthi temple. It so happens that Padumale is the birthplace of the historically famous, Tulu naadu’s idolized twin-heroes Koti-Chennayya. Padumale is being considered by the Tourism Department as a likely tourist spot, for it being culturally important and for upholding the folk tradition. Hanumagiri now deserves to be a full fledged tourist spot and a pilgrimage centre for its sculptural splendour.


Surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of the Sahyadri hill range in the east, by the roaring Arabian Sea in the south, the calm surroundings of the Karavali coast, Hanumagiri stands amidst Udupi and Dakshina Kannada famously called Tulu naadu particularly in a place called Ishwaramangala, located  5 kms south of Sullia. One can notice the plantations of coconut, areca and banana in the plains on one side and varieties of trees, plants and bushes in the hills on the other. Lying in the border of Paduvannur and Nettanige Mudnur villages, this place of Hanuman has been named Hanumagiri.
