The origin of Sri Panchamukhi Hanuman can be traced in Ramayana. During the war between Lord Rama and Ravana, he took the help of Mahiravana who is the king of pathala. Lord Hanuman was protecting Lord Ram and Lakshman by forming a fortress with his tail. Mahiravana changed his appearace as Vibeeshana and took Lord Ram and Lakshman to pathala loka. Hanuman entered pathala loka in search of Rama and Lakshmana, During the war between Rama and Laxman with Highravana and Mahiravana. From their blood number of High Ravana and Mahiravana took birth. So the war become endless. Lord Hanuman got secrete and went to the place. The diamond ——– was protected by Vayudeva the father of Lord Hanuman which spreads Amruth (Nector) on the blood of Highravana and Mahiravana which lead to the creation of number of High Ravana Maihravana. Highrana and Mahiravana were the devotees of Vayudeva. So Lord Hanuman should have to fight with his father. In the battle, Lord Hanuman did not allow Vayudeva to move. In view of this, the blowing wind stopped. The diamond ——- unable flew Lord Hanuman became Panchamuka Hanuman i.e., Hanuman, Hayagriva, Narasimha, Garuda and Varaha and swallow the 5 diamond ——– . Therefore, Rama and Laxman killed Highravana and Mahiravana very easily.
