Hanuman was the principal deity of the Malla dynasty which ruled Nepal from the 12th - 18th century. Although Hanuman is generally known as a benevolent and loyal companion to the triad of Ram, Laxman and Sita, the five headed Hanuman, also called Panchmukhi Hanuman is the aggressive form of Hanuman depicted in the Ramayana.

The primary head is of Hanuman himself, starting from the left, the other heads feature Narasimha, Garuda, Varaha and Hayagriva at the top. The five headed Hanuman with his tail elegantly curved down towards the base has ten arms holding different weapons in each hand.
