Hanuman: The Heroic Monkey God

An illustrated story of Hanuman, the heroic monkey God of the epic tale Ramayana.

Its a simple story of a monkey rescuing the princess from the clutches of the villain. On a metaphorical level its a story of hope, faith, confidence, devotion, belief, righteousness, goodness prevailing over evil.

A simple tale assumes mythological proportions and a simple devoted monkey becomes a venerated god. People pray to Hanuman to remove all the obstacles in their life. There are temples devoted exclusively to Hanuman and of course he gets his permanent place at the feet of Lord Rama, the virtuous king.

The illustrations in the book are absolutely exquisite and mind blowing. Goodreads 5/5
