Āñjaneya is found in samapāda-sthānaka with hands in añjali-hasta. To the left of the sannidhi of Āñjaneya is the sanctum for Rāmānuja. To the right, there are the sanctums for Garuḍ āl vār, Cakratālvār, Viṣṇu Durgā and Veṇugopāl. As one proceeds further from the Āñjaneya’s sannidhi, there is the Garuḍa Maṇḍapa where Garuḍ a is found in añjali-hasta.
