    There is an ode dedicated to Hanuman, known as the Hanuman Chalisa. It is a poem of 40 stanzas (Chaupayees.) and talks about the strength, generosity, intelligence of Hanuman.

    Hanuman Chalisa shows how the legendary figure surpasses everyone. The qualities of Hanuman – his strength, courage, wisdom, celibacy, devotion to Lord Rama, and the many names by which he was known – are detailed in the Hanuman Chalisa.

    Who composed the actual Hanuman Chalisa?

    Hanuman Chalisa was composed by Tulsidas, a 16th-century poet-saint who was also a philosopher and reformer. Tulsidas is also renowned as the composer of Ramcharitmanas for his devotion to Shri Rama.

    Goswami Tulasidas composed Hanuman Chalisa in 40 days in Jail of Third Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar. At the age of 63 years, Goswami Tulasidasji was captured by Third Mughal Emperor Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar in 1560 A.D.

    Jo shat bar path kare koi, Chhutahin bandi maha sukh hoi
