The “Chakarimetla Sahakara Anjaneyaswamy” temple is surrounded by a dense forest. It just takes 1 hour 30 minutes to go to Narsapur from Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana state. The temple is actually situated between Narsapur and Toopran. There are two routes to the temple; from Toopran, along the national highway 7 towards Chinnagottimukkula village, Shivampet Mandal and also from Balanagar towards Narsapur Medak, then, to Chinnagottimukkula village, which would be only 5 minutes drive from Narsapur Circle. 20 minutes drive from Toopran ‘Y’ junction. It gives immense pleasure after visiting the main deity of “Sahakara Anjaneya Swamy” who is self-manifested some thousand years ago while Saints and Monks were doing penance in the middle of the dense forest. It was located in Shivampet Mandal of Narsapur Constituency at Chinnagottimukkula Village. After that, the temple was ignored for many years and it was away from the people. The temple has quadrangular space;The main road is to the north of temple while Satyanarayana Swamy temple is west of it.
Now it has become one of the famous holy places in the state of Telangana.
B. Anjaneya Sharma (Founder Trustee):
Indeed, the temple came into limelight 60 years ago by Bhaskara Rayuni Seetha Rama Sharma who was a worshipper of Lord Anjaneya. He belonged to a village called ‘Kothapally’ which is 3kms journey from temple. He found the self-manifested “Chakarimetla Anjaneya Swamy” in his dream, saying that he was there at Chakarimetla Chinnagottimukkala village without any care. Since Bhaskara Rayuni Seetharama Sharma was a worshipper of lord Hanuman he had suggested him to take care of him. Then, Sharma came to the place where the idol of the Hanuman was laid down in the bushes of dense forest. He had taken it out and reinstalled the main deity after the 41 days of “Mandala Puja”, Homam and Penance. In response to his service and worshipping Seetharama Sharma was blessed with a baby boy. As Hanuman helped him by blessing him with a child, Bhaskara Rayuni Seetharama Sharma named the deity “Sahakara Anjaneya Swamy” Then onwards, the devotees started worshipping him as “Sahakara Anjaneya Swamy.”
One day Seetharama Sharma observed the Conch and Divine Wheel (Shanku, Chakra) to the main deity, he felt that as Hanuman is a reincarnation of Shiva and the Conch and Chakra belonged to Vishnu; if the “Sathyanarayana Vratam” is performed, the devotees would be blessed with both “Shivakeshava” and would get immense results.
Hence, he performed “Sathyanarayana Vratam” at Chakarimetla for the first time. Now, lakhs of couples rush to perform “Sathyanarayana Vratam” at the holy place. S.Vishvanatha shastry and Anantharama sharma who belonged to Shivampet mandal performed pujas. Several families who belonged to Chinnagottimukkala village contributed their services to the temple.
The Greatness of the Place:
The vicinity of the sanctum and sanctorum has been surrounded by herbal plants, a big oak at the south west; huge hills at the south side and a small lake in the hills elevate the importance of the temple. The saints would bring water from this lake to do “Abhishekam” to the main deity before their penance.
