Hanuman Jayanti 2020 Puja Vidhi, Samagri, Mantra: Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Lord Hanumana who was born to Kesari and Anjani after years of penance, as per the Hindu astrology. Also known as Anjaneya, his birthday is celebrated on the night of full moon or purnima during the Chaitra month of the Hindu calendar.
