Lord Veera Mangala Anjaneya temple in Nallatore village, Tiruttani taluk, Thiruvallur District, Tamil Nadu is situated on the banks of the Kusaasthalai, with the presiding deity Veera Anjaneya popularly known also as Bala Anjaneya. It is said to have been built originally during the 15th century by the saint Sri Vyasaraja Swamigal who was guru of Emperor Krishnadevarayar. Saint Sri Vyasaraja Swamigal was on his way to Tirupati where he was to perform his Vyasa puja and observe the chatur masa vritha. But since the river Kusaasthalai was flooded he could not cross the river. On the divine direction, Sri Vyasaraja Swamigal installed the Shri Veera Anjaneya shilpa in the banks of Kusaasthalai at Nallatore village, which he was otherwise planning to install in Tirupati. Around Seven hundred and thirty two Hanuman temples were built by this great saint. This temple is one among them
Though the presiding deity is Lord Veera Anjaneya, he is popularly known as Bala Anjaneya since his features resemble those of a small child. Seen as walking towards North direction where Tirupati abode of Lord Venkataswar is situated.
