According to one version of the story and numerous lines, Hanuman was born as the result of a curse on a heavenly angel (Apsara), a blessing from Lord Shiva, and a gift from Vayu, the God of the Wind.

Hanuman wrapped himself in Sindoor because of his unfailing devotion to Shree Ram. Lord Rama, moved by Hanuman’s bravery, imposed a condition. Everyone who worships Hanuman in the future must use the auspicious red powder sindoor, and all their troubles will be resolved. As a result, the Idol of Lord Hanuman is often represented in vermilion in Hindu temples.
