Hanuman Ji History In Thai Hanuman:

The Thai Hanuman was adapted from the origin of Ramakien in the Hindu Hanuman. In Thailand culture, Hanuman appears wearing crown on his head and armor to protect him from demons. In addition, the Thai Hanuman was derived from the Lopburi monkey in Thailand. According in Thai myth, Hanuman was created by Lord Shiva. The body of Hanuman was created by the great Lord Shiva as a main weapon. Hanuman's appearance has crystal teeth, diamond fur, and a long tail that can surround a whole mountain. Moreover, Hanuman's mother is Anjana who was paralyzed for many months until the god of wind Vayu blew into her mouth, and then she gave birth from her mouth the white monkey Hanuman who was already seven years old when he was born.

In Ramkien, Hanuman is a devoted soldier of Rama, and a very strong monkey that could kill millions of King Toskaka's Demon armies. Unlike in Indian adaptations, he is not a celibate, and meets the mermaid Suvannamaccha while on a mission for Rama. The couple have a son: the half monkey, half fish Macchanu. Moreover, Hanuman had another son with a beautiful female demon.[49]
