  1. Daily Puja and Offerings: In many households, Hanuman is worshipped daily, especially on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Devotees offer flowers, incense, oil lamps, and sweets to his idol or image. Recitation of Hanuman Chalisa, a devotional hymn dedicated to Hanuman, is a common practice.

  2. Temples: There are numerous Hanuman temples across India, with the most famous one being the Hanuman Temple in Ayodhya, believed to be his birthplace. The Hanuman Temple in Delhi (Connaught Place) is also a popular pilgrimage site. Devotees visit these temples to seek blessings, perform aarti (ritual of worship with lamps), and offer prasad (sacred food) to Hanuman.

  3. Hanuman Jayanti: Hanuman Jayanti is the celebration of Hanuman's birthday and is observed with great enthusiasm in many parts of India, particularly in North India. Devotees fast, sing bhajans (devotional songs), and visit temples on this occasion.

  4. Tail Puja: In some regions, Hanuman is worshipped by applying sindoor (vermilion) to his tail as a symbol of his loyalty to Lord Rama. This practice is often associated with the belief that it can protect one from negative influences.

  5. Processions: In certain parts of India, grand processions are organized during Hanuman Jayanti and other festivals dedicated to Hanuman. These processions feature idol processions, cultural performances, and enthusiastic participation by devotees.

  6. Vigils and Fasts: Some devotees observe fasts on Tuesdays and Saturdays to seek Hanuman's blessings and strength. Fasting is often combined with reading or reciting the Hanuman Chalisa.

  7. Hanuman Aradhana: In states like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the ritual of "Hanuman Aradhana" is performed by chanting Hanuman Chalisa 108 times in a continuous, non-stop manner.

  8. Hanuman's Chant: The chanting of the "Om Shri Hanumate Namah" mantra is another common practice among Hanuman devotees. This mantra is believed to invoke Hanuman's blessings and protection.
