In no other place, Anjaneyar has:
- A hill and temple of his own abode
- Seen in yoga posture
- Seen with four hands
- Seen with sankhu (counch) and chakram (discus)
- Kreetam (crown) having the image of rama pattabishekam
According to a few Vaishnavite scholars, Anjaneyar is doing penance atop the hill to become the next Brahma (after the present kali yuga). The Lord has reportedly advised Anjaneyar that there is a better service to perform, than becoming a Brahma, which is just a post created for a specific purpose of being a creator of the Universe. Instead, the Lord has advised Anjaneyar, the 4-handed bestower of boons, that by blessing his devotees who visit Him at Thirukadigai (sholingar), he can remain in the eternal service of the Lord.
