Sri Hanumanji is an ardent devotee of Shri Rama and the embodiment of strength, valor and courage. Sri Panchmukhi Hanuman is one of the most important upasana deity of our Guru Parampara. Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman refers to the five faced Hanuman. According to the scriptures, Lord Hanuman assumed this form to slay Mahiravana, brother of Ravana.
