Hanuman photograph. Real or fake ?

The photograph at left is of Lord Hanuman and taken by Manas Sarovar pilgrim. The story about its origin goes like

A group of people went to Manas-sarovar for a piligrimage trip. One of the person there is a Upasaka of Hanuman. He was exploring some caves and accidentally bounced upon a being looking like Lord Hanuman. All of them had cameras and this person happend to click the camera and died there for reasons not known. The other persons fished him out and the camera and here is the picture the camera showed. I do not know how much it is true but many people are believing it. It is a fact that Hanuman does exist in flesh and blood because he is a Chiranjeevi

Before believing this version, as with the Indian psyche, nobody tried to investigate and get the details about the person who took this snap and died because of it. It is not difficult to get the list of pilgrims for Manas Sarovar yatra as it should be documented in Government of India records and there will be very few are dead during the yatra.

If one looks at the picture, the image shows a old monkey like creature reading a book said to be Ramayana. If it is a real picture then I wonder the Chirinjeevi Hanuman is gettng old with age and typeface of Ramayana is very big with just six lines on a single page.

There is quite a chance that this photo is taken from hand drawn picture, as it lacks detailing.

If anybody who is reading this has any further information about this episode, please enlighten us about it. Till then enjoy the curiosity of Indian Mysticism.

The pic that u have shown is really a hand drawn one... but the real pic of hanuman has been rarely found on the internet...because it is of utmost important to the hindus to preserve that form rather than publishing for free on the net...

If you want to check the difff betn real or fake just follow the link below..

The image on the right is the real form... That has been captured by many people and they have modified it to get a clear picture...

Hope you guys have got enough evidence that this is true...

fake pic

sonel said...

sonIts really tuff to say, after all it is hindu epic... it depends on faith n belief u have on god.
but still i don't think that it must be true, now lets see if it is the real one than the person who snap out the click would have got enough time to click it and if so why there is no reaction or anything like that.... its doesn't seems that hanumaan dada would be sitting there giving pose waiting for someone to come click a snap.
Have look on photo, it is just so perfect- like purposed for a photo,
and lastly after all india is a religious country, it is really easy to fool people on the name of god, so i think it is a act of few peoples...

why do you care whether its real or not..have you never felt Lord Hanuman's presence....you are made of so many molecules of hydrogen and carbon have you taken pains to see them yourself...making money or getting publicity in Lords name is disgusting..

It is better not to go in deep discussion if it is fake or no because it is a god's issue, better stop of having a question " it is a fake or real"? This is a kind request from my side.

hi guys! this is a real pic. someone has writen that hanuman is old and he is chiranjeevi. absolutly no! CHIRANJEEVI IS A PERSON STRONG BYU MIND AND HEART AND BY BODY AND LIVING FOREVER BUT NOT JUST BY WHITE HAIR YOU CAN GUESS. SEE, in this kaliyuga its said that dharma is destroyed and hanuman might have revealed himself for the sake of dharma and the upasaka of hanuman was may be given moksha. our friend sonel said that hanuman have given a pose! gods know wahta will happen the next second and do not need to get shocked for these silly things and as i said in this kaliyuga its said that dharma is destroyed and hanuman might have revealed himself for the sake of dharma and the upasaka of hanuman was may be given moksha. so thisis purely a real picture

100% fake.. come on people can't you differentiate what's right and what's not ?

It is a hand drawn pic.. a perfect portrait.. Not something taken suddenly or in hiding like the stories..
We as indian's are fooled every other day with such pics..

GROW UP PEOPLE.. GET REAL FOR ONCE!!!

well i heard the same story from my sis..bt i cnt say anything abt pic since m seeing this pic fr frst tym..hvint seen other pics..so i too think this is hand made..bt story is real..the real pic isnt showd on internet..

deepak said...

the storry might be true,but this picture is'nt .because,if hanuman can kill that person on spot without any mark,then he can easely destroy the photo,,,,,,,,,,,and still he can!!!!!!!!!!

gogle said...

If this picture true , pl'z show a perfect evidence . After that we believe it's true . another Question is In which year this photo was taken & by whom ?? If that person was died , pl'z share his other friends name & comments , who were present at that time . Last question is why at that time Its not make a Big Issue in India , Nobody know about this . So plz write your comments .

Akhilesh Gopaul said...

It can be true because no doubt, ramayana real took place and it is said that hanuman is immortal and somewhere in this world hanuman must be present in blood and flesh. I dont know if this photo is fake or true but hanuuman is residing somewhere in this huge world....

smartie said...

This pic is true... the person who had taken the pic belongs to jabalpur M.P.
Ya i too got it when i was in 12th stndrd arnd 2001-2002.
His frnd with whom he had gone is brother of my fathers collegue.
Abt the pic...
He saw a light (prakash punj) type in the cave... he thought that the person who is having this might be some one who is above normal... so he thoguht that i can take his pic and with flash i will be able to see him too...
now wqhen he taken the pic, whole cave flashed , due to which his eyes stopped working.... his frnd found him (shortening the story)... and taken him to military hospital, where he died normally death.
be4 death he said his frnd this whole story,
shankaracharya has a math their... when he got this news.... he explored this... how if some one want to knw mail me at vishalthapak@yahoo.co.in
as i dont like to write any more as i think no one is active now here ne more....

if Hanuman ji gets old is the reason then havent you guys heard the story of hanuman ji in which he appears like an old monkey lying on the way in front of Bheem.
then he showed him the reality. So judging the picture on basis isn't appreciable.
