Anjanadri : Anjana Devi did tapasya here & Hanuman was born after vayu deva gave her divine fruit.

Vaikunta Ekadasi : Tomorrow
Putrada Ekadashi

ऊँ नारायणाय विद्महे, वासुदेवाय धीमहि
तन्नो विष्णु प्रचोदयात्

The Ekadashi Tithi which falls on Shukla Paksha of Tamil month of Margazhi & Malayalam month of Dhanu is Vaikunta Ekadasi or Swarga Vashal Ekadashi & Paush Putrada Ekadashi
It is believed that Mahavishnu opens Vaikunta Dwaram (door) on this day. Vaikunta Dwaram is a special door near Garbha Griham in majority of Vishnu Temples. Those who enter through this Dwaram and exit through another door will get the Punya of visiting Vaikuntam
Importance of Vaikunta Ekadasi is mentioned in Padma Purana. Purana indicates that Mahavishnu took the form of Ekadashi ( female form) to kill Asura named Mura. Asura was granted Moksha and thus whoever prays Vishnu on this day will reach Vaikuntam.
