Sri Viswaroopa Panchamukha Anjaneya Swami Ashram is a charitable Trust, established by Poojya Sri Venkatesa Battachar Swamigal. The Ashram was constructed by Sri Viswaroopa Panchamukha Anjaneya Swami Foundation in the year 2004. When the project was started in the year 1993, many offers of land and resources came from different places. But Swami could not obtain Divine approval for such places.

When Periakuppam village was presented as a site for the Ashram, such Divine approval was readily available, though the significance of the place was not known at that time. The Ashram is managed by Sri Viswaroopa Panchamukha Anjaneya Swami Foundation.The foundation has established an ashram at Tiruvallur wherein a 40 feet monolithic green granite murti of Lord Viswaroopa Panchamukha Hanuman(also known as Panchamukhi Hanuman) has been installed and regular poojas are being conducted 6 times a day.

Significance of the temple
Sri Viswaroopa Panchamukha Anjaneya Swami Ashram
The Hanuman Murti is 40 feet tall and made out of single green granite stone. This is known to be one of the tallest murtis of Lord Hanuman in the world, to be sculpted out of a monolithic green granite stone measuring 36 x 20 x 10 and weighing approximately 220 tonnes. The sculpted Hanuman murti weighs 150 tonnes. The installation is made on the basis of mantra shastra.Usually temples are built on agama shastra.

Subsequently it became evident from a study of the ancient scrolls that this site has place in the legends. Lord Hanumanji, while carrying the Sanjeeva Parvatha to Sri Lanka, stopped here for a while to see Sage Agasthya performing poojas to a Siva linga. At that time this place was called Rudra vanam and was abode of Sages and Siddha Purushas. As per the "spool", the Siva linga worshipped by Sage Agasthya will surface as the right time. Tiruvallur, which lies in the Chennai-Thiruthani-Thirupathi route,45 kilometers from City Chennai, is already well known for the Divya Desam - Sri Vaidya Veeraraghava swami temple coming under the management of Ahobila Mutt.It was found out that the swami stone has an extraordinarily high specific gravity implying that the swami stone's age runs into many, many thousands of years. This is corroborated by the understanding of the sthapathis who had to use large number of diamond cutting wheels while sculpturing

When the swami stone was located in the year 1993 at a quarry in Hassan, it was a gigantic monolithic stone and weighed around 700 tons. Phenomenal efforts were required to move this stone from its place. When such hard work were in progress, Gurudev had a visualization of a massive monkey running down from a mountain. The subsequent day the news from Hassan was that the swami stone had slide down from the mountain top, on account of nonstop rain for a few days.

The gigantic swami stone was transported from Hassan, Karnataka, covering a distance of 610 kms, placed on a 120 tyred trailer and pulled by 2 massive prime-movers. The transportation from Hassan to the outskirts of Tiruvallur took only 22 days, crossing many bridges and ghat sections. A truly amazing feat!

This is known to be only pradishta in the world to be made under Mantra Shastra. The powerful Moola Manthras or Sacred Mantras of Sri Panchamukha Hanuman is displayed on the walls of the ashram, to be chanted by the devotees, without any discrimination. One of the principal objectives of Sri Viswaroopa Panchamukha AnjaneyaSwami Foundation is the propagation of Mantra,Yantra Shastras

The Moola Mantras Sacred Mantras of the Sri Panchamukhas Hanuman - five faces -will be written on the walls facing each Mukha and anybody, without any discrimination on the lines of religion, creed, caste, gender or status can chant for specified number of times for specific number of days, the specific Moola Mantra or Sacred Mantras relevant to the remedy the devotee is seeking, sitting before the appropriate Mukha and the remedy required will be readily available to such devotee.

The Sri Panchamukha Hanuman of Tiruvallur who is going to benefact the vast humanity should be a towering personality and hence Swamiji decided on a Viswaroopa murti of 40 feet height. The five faces are described hereunder:
  • The Murti face towards the East is Sri Hanuman Mukha in its original form. This Hanuman face removes all blemishes of sin and confers purity of mind.
  • The Murti facing the South is Sri Karala Ugravira Narasimha Swami, removes fear of enemies and confers victory.
  • The Murti face facing the west is of Lord Sri Mahavira Garuda and this west side face drives away evil spells, black magic influences, etc., and removes all evil effects in one's body.
  • The face facing North is of Sri Lakshmi Varaha murthi which takes off the troubles caused by bad influences of the planets and confers all prosperity-Ashta Aishwarya.
