What is Panchmukhi Hanuman(Panchamukha Hanuman)

Lord Hanuman is one of the most revered Gods in the Hindu religion. Lord Hanuman, the devout 'Bhakt' (devotee) of Lord Rama is the symbol of bravery, courage, loyalty and pure devotion. Lord Hanuman is an Avatar of Lord Shiva. Lord Hanuman inspires us to face all the odds and to fight all the challenges life throws at us bravely. He is depicted with a strong, muscular body, holding His weapon, the Gada (Mace) in one hand. Lord Hanuman blesses us with His protection, vitality, good health, physical/mental strength, Knowledge, clears the path to success and many other blessings. He fulfils the desires of His devotees.

The Panchmukhi Hanuman is a form of Lord Hanuman in which He is depicted with five faces. The 5 Mukhi Hanuman is said to be the huge or 'virat' form of the majestic Lord and is very powerful. Each face is the face of one of Lord Vishnu's Avatar, with Lord Hanuman's face in the centre. The Panchmukhi Hanuman significance lies in the fact that the faces of Lord Vishnu's Avatar faces a specific direction for a reason. Every aspect of this form has its own importance. Therefore each face has its own significance and reason for being and holds specific significance. The Panchamukha Hanuman benefits the worshipper with many blessings, including liberating from all kinds of fears, enemies, negative or lower energies.

Lord Hanuman is considered one of the prominent Yogis who is known to have gained complete control over the Pancha Indriyas (five senses) according to the ancient Holy Scriptures. The importance of number 5 is wonderfully given in the Tamil version of the epic Ramayana known as Ramavataram and popularly known as Kamba Ramayanam as it was written by the Tamil poet Kambar.

We enlist below the importance of Number Five in association with Hanumanji:-

  • Lord Hanuman is the son of one of the five elements, son of Wind – Pavan Putra
  • Lord Hanuman risked His own life, took the leap of faith and crossed the water body to find Sita Devi. Water is among the 5 basic elements.
  • He could fly in the air which again is one of the five elements namely the sky,
  • He met daughter of Earth which again is one of the five elements – Sita Devi
  • Hanuman burnt the entire Lanka by Fire, another element.

This may be one of the reasons why we circumambulate or do Pradakshina 5 times around the idol of Lord Hanuman or in digits which if summed up results as five like 14, 23 or 41


The Story of Shree Panchmukhi Hanuman finds its mention in the renowned and great epic of Ramayana. During the fierce battle between Lord Sri Ram and demon King Ravana, Ravana sought assistance and help from Mahiravan, the king of Patala Loka (underworld or netherworld). After learning that Ravana has sought help from Mahiravan, Vibhishan alerts Hanuman and tells Him to protect Ram and Lakshman during the nights. Lord Hanuman built a fortress with His tail around the place where Rama and Lakshman were sleeping. The entry to this fortress was only possible through entering the mouth of Lord Hanuman Himself and the exit was through his ears.

Stealthily, the demon King of Patala, King Mahiravan disguised himself as Vibhishan and entered the castle pretending to check the arrangements Lord Hanuman has made for Ram and Lakshman's comfortable sleep. Mahiravan contracted the size of Lord Ram and Lakshman through His magical powers and carried both (Ram and Lakshman) of them away in his betel leaves box. At dawn when Lord Hanuman opened the fortress He was shocked to see that Lord Ram and Lakshman were missing. Hanuman understood that it was the conspiracy of Mahiravan and without wasting much time Hanuman quickly rushed to Patala Loka. While battling with Mahiravan, Lord Hanuman learned that Mahiravan was invincible as his life was preserved and safeguarded in five different lamps which were kept in five different directions, far away from one another. Mahiravan could only be killed if the five lamps were extinguished at the same time. This is when Lord Hanuman took the powerful avatar (form) of Panchamukhi and extinguished the five lamps at once and thus killed Mahiravan and saved Ram and Lakshman.


The five heads of the Panchmukhi form include Hayagriva, Narasimha, Hanuman, Varaha and Garuda. Among these five faces, the three faces namely Narasimha, Hayagriva, and Varaha are Lord Vishnu’s incarnations. Garuda is the devout Eagle-Human Bird, who served as the vehicle or vahana of Lord Vishnu. Therefore the Panchamukhi Hanuman form holds the combined powers of Lord Hanuman and Lord Vishnu. All the five heads of the Panchmukhi Hanuman hold a specific significance which is as follows:

Hayagriva (the horse face)

Lord Hayagriva face is always seen facing the sky. This Hayagriva face offers superior knowledge, generates goodwill and blesses with good progeny. The devotees are bestowed with the zeal and passion to achieve what they aim for and help them in attaining salvation.

Narasimha (the lion face)

The Lord Narasimha faces the South. It blesses by liberating the worshipper from all kinds of fears, helps to stay away from sins and protects from evils. This avatar blesses the worshipper with victory and fearlessness.

Garud (the eagle face)

The Garud face is seen facing the West. This avatar wards off all kinds of negativities, Black Magic and ailments.

Varaha (the boar face)

The Lord Varaha faces the North. The Varaha face is said to shower all kinds of wealth and prosperity to the worshipper.

Hanuman (the monkey face)

Lord Hanuman faces the East direction and blesses His devotees with happiness and fulfilment of their desires.

Panchamukhi Hanuman Mantra:

Sri shanka chakra ramaniya bhujagra desam
Peethambaram makara kundala noopurangam
