The tale of Panchamukha Hanuman from Ramayana tells of the monkey god’s battle with the King of Patala, Ahiravana, and his five celestial lamps. Hidden within the flames of these lamps, diverging away in five different directions, lay the soul of the daitya king. To kill Ahiravana the flames all needed to be extinguished at the same time. Lord Hanuman spouted five faces, each with a distinct personality and unique strength. Working together, the five faces extinguished the five lamps. Ahiravana died.

North is the face of Laxmi Varaha, the celestial hog. South is Karala Ugraveera Narasimha, the lion-face. East is Anjaneya, with serene compassion on his divine glowing face. West is Mahaveera Garuda, with a moustache and a third-eye tilak on his forehead. The fifth and the final one - capable of turning skyward - is Hayagriva, the horse-face. A composite red-gold halo frames the five faces of the god representing his transcendental yogic prowess.


This pristine sculpture of glacial white marble is crafted with consummate care to skillfully represent the life-like details upon the five divine faces of Lord Pancamukha. Each face holds a different expression. Observe the carefully proportioned musculature of the shoulders, torso and legs. Five jewel-studded crowns, crimson and turquoise, brocaded silk dhoti adorn his body. Right hand raised in blessing, left holding his signature mace. This classy and exquisite depiction is made complete by Lord Hanuman’s legendary tail - the same one that burned down Ravana’s city of gold. The long thick tail curls delicately behind him finally coming to rest upon the same pedestal where the rest of the statue stands.


The tale of Panchamukha Hanuman is a little-recounted episode of the Ramayana. The Rama-devotee had sprouted these five (‘panca’) faces (‘mukha’) in order to vanquish the King Ahiravana of patala-loka (netherworldly realm of existence). This was because the King was hidden in the flames of five different lamps located in each of the five directions. The five faces of Lord Pancamukha are - from left to right - in the images of Lakshmi Varaha (North), Mahaveera Garuda (west), Anjaneya (east), Karala Ugraveera Narasimha (south), and Hayagriva (skywards). In the fine marble Hanuman-roopa that you see on this page, each of these have been carved in glimmering, lifelike detail.


The complexion, a glacial white. Set off by the diamond-studded crowns of gold on each of the five sacred heads. A composite halo of solid golden color, fashioned from the same medium. The rest of the form of Lord Panchamukha is a work of beauty and transcendental yogic prowess. Superior musculature of a fair complexion, set off by the crimson and turquoise silks of a short, brocaded dhoti. Right hand raised in generous blessing, the signature gada (mace) in the left. The long, thick tail lying gently against a simplistic plinth embossed with miniscule gold petals. There is wisdom on the brow of each of Hanuman’s five faces, divine compassion swimming in all five pairs of eyes.
