Anjana

To read about the Cantabrian fairy, see Anjana (Cantabrian mythology).
An idol of Anjani Mata, having son Hanuman in her lap in the Anjani Mata temple, Chomu.

Añjanā (Tamil: Anchanai, Malay: Anjani or Anjati, Thai: Sawaha) was the mother of Hanuman, one of the heroes of the Indian epic, the Ramayana. According to one version of the story, Añjanā was an apsara named Puñjikastalā, who came to earth and married Kesari, a monkey chief. Vayu, god of the wind, carried the divine power of Lord Shiva to Anjana's womb, and thus Hanuman was himself an incarnation of Lord Shiva.[1][2]
