About Shri Hanuman

Sri Hanuman, son of Kesari and Mata Anjana, is also known as Mahavir, Bajrangbali, Maruti, Pawanaputra, Anjaniputra and Kesarinandan. Pawanaputra Hanuman is considered to be the 11th Rudra avatar of Prabhu Shiva, so Shiva lingam is installed in every Hanuman temple.

The vermilion placed on the murti of Hanuman is considered very sacred. Devotees often apply tilak of this vermilion on their forehead. It is believed that through this tilak, devotees get powerful, energetic and restrained like him by the grace of Shri Hanuman.

Shri Panchmukhi Hanuman

Ahiravan lit five lamps for Maa Bhavani, which were placed in five different places in five directions. Slaughter of Ahiravana was possible only when these five lamps will quench simultaneously. Therefore, Hanuman took the form of Panchmukhi to kill Ahiravan.

The five faces of Shri Panchmukhi Hanuman are as follows, Varaha Mukha in the north, Narasimha Mukha in the south, Garuda Mukha in the west, Hayagreeva Mukha towards the sky and Hanuman Mukha in the east. Wearing this form, he extinguished all five lamps and killed Ahiravana and freed Shri Rama and Lakshmana.
