The origin of Panchamukhi Hanuman can be traced back to the days of Ramayana where during the war between Lord Rama and Ravana, Ravana took help of Mahiravanka who is the king of Pathala.
As the legend goes, when Mahiravana took the form of Vibeeshana and took Lord Ram and Lakshman to pathala loka, Hanuman entered the place in search of Rama and Lakshmana and discovered that to kill Mahiravana he had to extinguish five lamps burning in five different directions at the same time.
