About Shri Sundar Kaand

Lord Hanuman was fondly called Sundar by His mother Anjani, hence sage Valmiki chose to name the story of Hanuman as Sundar Kaand which was later adapted by Goswami Tulsidas in his writing of the Ramcharitmanas. It is the fifth of the seven Kaands in Valmiki Ramayana and virtually forms the heart of the scripture. It is the only section of Ramayana where the hero is not Lord Rama himself, but his most ardent servant Lord Hanuman. The Sundar Kaand primarily details search of Goddess Sita in Lanka and his confrontation with Ravana. The super human powers of Lord Hanuman are described as he makes a giant leap across the ocean, jumping from Lanka back to Lord Rama.
