Hanuman is the Deity known for love, devotion, compassion, intelligence, and strength, and is the most widely worshiped god of this faith.
Sankat Mochan translates into ‘reliever from all troubles” He is seen standing upright on a pedestal, holding a mace in his right hand, while his left-hand gestures Abhay Mudra which symbolize protection, peace, and dispelling of fear. The crown on his head represents divine qualities and the actuality that he is a king, and the scepter that he carries represents the unity of the world and Hindu paragons and propositions.

Hanuman or the Sankat Mochan is known to protect everyone from evil and thus, keeping Hanuman’s Sculpture at home wards off evil energy and it is said that those households do not suffer any such problems.
