Story of Panchmukhi Hanuman
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 all those five lamps at once and thus killed Mahiravan and saved Ram and Lakshman.
