This temple in Maddur of Mandya district on the banks of Simsha river and is one of the famous spiritual centres in Maddur. It is around 3-4 kilometers from Maddur Bus station. It is famously known as "Hole Anjaneya Swamy" temple. It is beleived the lord Hanuman Idol here was established by SriPadaRaja and Vyasaraja gurus and hence finds its importance.

It is believed that this temple was constructed 550 years ago during the period of Vijayanagar kings. The idol is very unique of its kind where lord Hanuman extends his two fingers signifying Dvaita preaching of Madhwacharya , one hand has Sougandikha flower representing Bhima , a bell in the tail and a hair knot.
