Vastu & Astrology Counsellor, Vishnuprasad Mallya, says that Lord Shri Ram was born on Chaitra Shukla Navami. Five days later, the eleventh Rudra avatar, Shri Hanumanji was born.
Hanumanji is known to be Chiranjeevi. He had revived Lakshmanji, by bringing the Sanjeevani Herb at the time of need, when Meghnadh (Son of Ravana) had attacked him with the Shakti prahar.
Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated on a full moon day, during Chaitra month. Hanuman, who is also known as Vanara God (Monkey faced God), was born on this day and Hanuman Jayanti is celebrated to remember his birth.
Devotees observe Hanuman Jayanti during different times of the year according to their regional beliefs and the type of calendar being followed. Hanuman Jayanti during Chaitra Purnima is the most popular one in North Indian states.
In South India, Hanuman Jayanthi is celebrated for more than 40 days, starting on Chaitra Purnima and ending on the tenth day during Krishna Paksha, in Vaishakha month.
It is believed that Hanuman was born at Sunrise. On Hanuman Jayanti day, temples start spiritual discourses at dawn, before Sunrise, and stop after Sunrise.
