How Bajrangbali Got The Name?

Ramayana Stories

One day, when Sita was applying vermilion on her forehead, a curious Hanuman asked, “Why do you apply vermilion.” Sita replied “for longer and healthier life of Lord Rama.” The enthusiastic Hanuman smeared his entire body with vermilion. Lord Rama burst out into laughter seeing Hanuman smeared in Vermilion. He named him ‘Bajrangbali’, which comes from the word Bajrang, meaning ‘orange.’
