The time evolution of temperatures of anisotropic nanoparticles in two- and three-body systems are simulated for various relative orientations. Nanoparticles are immersed in a thermal bath at constant temperature. It is shown that in two-body systems, the relative orientation of nanoparticles could drastically affect the dynamics of temperature evolution and thermalization time scale. Moreover, in some configurations, the temperature difference in initial state has a major effect on the dynamics of temperatures. In three-body systems, the orientation of the third nanoparticle influences the temperature dynamics, which allows one to control the thermalization time scales between anisotropic nanoparticles. Also, in addition to the previously known contribution of the smallest distance between isotropic nanoparticles on the thermalization time scales, it is shown that the nanoparticles' orientations are more important in some particular arrangements.
