According to Hindu mythology, Lord Hanumanji has a muscular and massive human body along with the face of a Vanara (monkey), who has strength over all other monkeys in the world. Hence his other name is Vanararaj (king of monkeys). During the journey of Shri Rama to rescue Sita Mata from Ravan, the king of Lanka who abducted her during their Vanavas (exile), Lord Hanuman commanded the Vanara Sena (army of monkeys) to help Lord Rama.
His mother was Anjana and his father was Kesari who were the king and queen of the Monkey kingdom. Due to this reason, he is also known as Kesarinandan (son of Kesari) and Anjana putra (son of Anjana). One of his other famous names is Pawanputra which means the son Vayu (God of wind) as his spiritual father was Vayu. Lord Hanuman is believed to be an incarnation (avatar) of Lord shiva.
Once he was struck with a thunderbolt by Indra as a kid because he tried to to eat Sun which he thought as a fruit. For being a mischievous child, he was once cursed by sages which made him forget all his powers and strengths. During Shri Rama’s journey to Lanka, he regained the knowledge of his strengths and powers and went out alone to meet Sita mata in captivity.
