Description

Hanuman Jayanti is the birthday of Hanuman, a monkey god and devotee of Rama. Seen as a symbol of physical strength and perseverance, Hindus often perform special chants to Hanuman when they are faced with obstacles. On this day, worshipers fast and visit temples, where they apply a tilak of sindhoor (vermillion) from Hanuman’s body to their forehead for good luck. This holiday is especially celebrated in northern India.
