H
anuman Jayanti

Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated mainly in Northern India, especially in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, during the month of Chaitra, to commemorate the birth of Hanuman, the monkey god. It marks a symbolic acceptance of the human race's peaceful co-existence with nature and the worship of an animal as a divine creature. Hanuman was an ardent devotee of Lord Rama, and is worshipped for his unflinching devotion to God. The festival is especially important to Brahmacharis, wrestlers and bodybuilders, since Hanuman is the symbol of strength and energy. During this festival, special pujas are performed at the Hanuman temples and bananas are put before the idol as offerings.
