Hanuman Jayanti is the celebration of the birth of Lord Hanuman, the Vanara god and devotee of Lord Sri Ramchandra. He is the son of Mata Anjana and Kesari and is also described as the son of Vayu Deva i.e. the wind god. Hanuman Jayanti varies as per regional beliefs but the one that falls on Chaitra Purnima is widely celebrated. It is believed that Lord Hanuman was born on Chaitra Purnima after sunrise on Tuesday. In 2018, Hanuman Jayanti falls on March 31. Devotees of Lord Hanuman visit the temple and apply tilak of sindoor to the forehead of the idol.
