The brass figure of Five Headed Panchmukhi Hanuman is nicely carved. Lord Hanuman is the key figure of the great Indian epic Ramayana and a great devotee of Lord Ramchandra, the protagonist of Ramayana and one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Hanuman is an ardent devotee of Lord Rama. He is the symbol of power, energy, strength and knowledge. And, an epitome of true devotion and brahmcharya (bachelorhood). Panchamukhi Hanuman is a form of Hanuman which has five different faces. Panchmukhi Hanuman is said to be originated at the time of war between Ravana and Lord Rama. During the war, Ravana took help of Ahiravana, the King of Patala (hell). Ahiravana appeared in the form of Vibhishana. Then, he took Rama and Lakshmana to patala loka. Lord Hanuman, in order to protect them, formed a fortress with his tail and entered Patalaka Loka. There he found that he had to extinguish five lamps burning in five different directions at the same time to kill Ahiravana. Then, he originated into the form of Panchmukhi Hanuman with Hanuman, Hayagriva, Narasimha, Garuda and Varaha faces and killed Ahiravana by extinguishing the five lamps.
