Quote from Invincible Krises 2 page 126:
Hanuman (Anoman) is the monkey chief, mythical leader of a large troop of ape-like creatures, ally of Rama in his war against Ravana the demon -king of Lanka (Ramayana). Through the stories of Ramayana, he has become a very popular and loved character.
He is symbol of valor and loyalty. Still now in Bali Hanuman is a particularly sakti character and he is very present in the Balinese society.
