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.
In Himachal Pradesh she is worshiped as family deity by several people.There is one temple dedicated to her at Masrer near Dharamsala District Kangra. It is believed that Anjana once came there and remained there for some time.One of the local revealed her truth to other villagers against the wish of Goddess Anjana. Hence she left but turned that local (Gaddi community) in to a stone which lies outside her temple. Here one thing new is anjana is also having a mount which is a Scorpio and people never visit to doctor if a scorpio Bites them rather they worship Goddess and poison has no effect on them.
