3) Apply some white clarified white butter (loni) to his chest where the photo of Shri Ram  with Lakshman and Sitaji is present and some to be smeared to this mouth as if to signify that he is eating it.

4) Start this puja on a  Tuesday or Saturday, a New Moon day or a Moola Nakshatra day and continue applying in small proportions till the top of the tail for continuous 48 days.

5) For ladies, if continuity is a problem, then it is recommended that someone else in the family continues it for them for the 4 days of their absence.

6) Show 3 rounds of camphor, and light 2 aggarbattis to please the lord.

7) Fold your hands and ask for your hearts desire and surely at the end of the stipulated time, you will be rewarded with your hearts desire.

8 ) Reciting the Hanuman Chalisa will doubly benefit you. Read here for the benefits.

Here Sindoor does not mean Kumkum or  the  sindoor that women apply to their forehead, it is vermilion and  bright orange in color. The sindoor which is applied on Lord Hanuman is an orange colour sindoor called the Bhakra Sindoor in Bihar. This sindoor when mixed with Chameli tel or ghee is then applied on Lord Hanuman.

Read Story of Sindoor Hanumanji here

Dear Readers, I  have experienced it and I want all the good souls out there to experience his power.

Keep the Sindoor with the Chameli tel(Jasmine oil) in a small container and continue applying the same paste day after day. This is called as “Chola” for Hanumanji.

For people who are find it difficult to count the nos of days (48), it is advisable that you take small red sticker bindis (the one that women apply on their forehead. ) from the market and  stick 48 bindis on the tail and each day apply the sindoor on one bindi each.

It is simple really, one only needs the shraddha (devotion) and Hanumanji is the epitome of Devotion. Any ways you call out the name of Rama, HE will protect you.

Special tips for readers based outside India and with the paucity of time:

We have Special photos  for the purpose of this pooja showing Hanumanji’s long tail with a small bell tied in the end.

    • Astrologer says:

      Dear Mr Chetan, we have sent you a photo of Hanumanji that you can frame and start your pooja.

      • anagha Sid says:

        i want to know will u get the desired immediately after 48 days. and is it just one wish u can ask for? and moreover in other websites it is said that the pooja lasts for 45 days not 48 days.
        can u kindly send me hanuman tail photo at [email protected]. thanks a lot!! ITS URGENT!!!

        • Padmavathy says:

          i have started 48 days tail pooja and I have completed only 14 days. Next month I need to go to Kollur temple as I had prayed to Moogambikai that I would be coming there after my wish is fulfilled. My question is can I take Hanumanji photo there and continue the pooja there in Bangalore or can I go only after completing this 48 day pooja here. Please advise.

    • Sindoor is never applied on photo there is a separate murti which we call sinduri murti. On sinduri murti sindur is applied, firstly cover the murti wid sum parda then remove the langot then start putting sindur wid the palm of ur right hand nd continue it for as long as u can nd keep on chanting hanuman chalisa then aftr finishing put a fresh langot on maharaj ji nd then remove the parda. He will bless u wid evrythng u want. U will urself feel happy frm inside. Do it my way for any help u can call me 9034111386

  2. Respected Sir,
    Could you please send me a picture of hanumanji please? I would also like to do a tail puja.
    Thank you and God Bless You

  3. Avijit Chowdhury says:

    Respected Sir,


    I would like to be clarified regarding showing of 3 rounds of Camphor. Is the Camphor required to be lighted. Some blogs suggest that Hanumanji’s Tail Puja is to be started from the BASE of the TAIL and finished at the tail of the TAIL. Can you please clarify how it should be apportioned exactly so that it finishes at the TAIL on the 48th day.

    I shall also be obliged if you kindly send me the soft copy of the Photo required for Tail Puja.

    regards> Avijit Chowdhury, Siliguri, West Bengal

  7. hi !

    I have been hearing it since my childhood that a female should not touch hanuman ji .That’s why i have never put any sindoor or even touched hanuman bhagwan in my life .It makes me feel real bad . Can anyone advice me anything on this please.
    I hope all of the unanswered questions above along with mine will be answered very soon.


    • Hi,

      Its nothing like that, god created humans as two different categories mostly males and females. Both are important, otherwise there is no births, deaths, good, bad, greed, anything etc….Even hanumanji was born to an female (anjana devi). So it is completely an myth, there is nothing wrong for females in worshiping hanumanji. He is an devotee of lord rama and sita both. But i can say that hanuman tail puja cannot be completed by females within 41 days because, in Indian mythology there is an condition, during the menses times females should not enter into the temples and should not worship the god at homes, if you believe in this condition then you are not eligible to start the hanuman puja otherwise you can start the hanuman puja also. It only depends on the truth and honesty of your soul. btw i am not a pandit, my email id is [email protected] if you have any doubts contact me.


  8. Hi
    I have completed 1 round of hanuman 48 days tail pooja. Can I remove(wipe) the sindoor dots on his tail after few months of the pooja?
    Can I do the pooja agai? (next round).
    I am reciting hanuman Chalusa daily
    pls advise.tq

  14. To whomever it may concern
    Good day I am writing for clarification/information on this topic?

    1)Can anyone perform this puja or is it specific to horoscope/birth chart influence ?
    2) is this the exact procedure for the puja or are there other rituals to perform ? If so may you please inform me of it ?

    Can the Jaya anjaneya pic be used for this purpose ?

    I thank you sincerely in advance and May Lord Hanuman richly bless you

    • Astrologer says:

      Ans 1) Anyone can do the pooja, irrespective of male of female. Best benefitted are those who have mangal/mars afflictions and shani mahadasha, sade sati or other malefic positions of saturn/shani in their natal chart.
      Ans 2 ) The procedure mentioned is the right procedure to do the pooja. You may do an other prasada if you wish too.
      Ans 3) The idea of the pooja is to worship the form of Hanumanji in “Veer” or valiant form. If you notice the image on the website as we have given is the form of Hanumanji in his “Vishal” or huge form, with one leg in the air and with the Sumeru Parvat/Sanjivani booti mountain in his hand and mace/gada in the other hand. The tail is also in its beautiful and marvellous form to complete 40-45 days of pooja.
      This form gives the positivity of the greatness of Shri Hanumanji.The Jaya Anjaneya picture is a still hand folded picture of Hanumanji as in Bhakti form.

      We will suggest you use this VEER Hnaumanji picture as we have suggested on the website. If you wish to order it for yourself, pay the PAYPAL link and download the HD picture for yourself.

      Any other queries, you may address us here.

  44. i have haruman swayambu moorthy in my pooja room how to apply sindur ?can i apply to whole body .im reciting hanuman chalisa daily

  45. I never thought hanumanji was so powerful after performing his Pooja only I came to know really lot of difference has happened in my life with his blessings many things can happen

  46. I am doing Hanumanjis 48 days pooja wearing wet clothes…. I want to know on the 48 th day as we have to make prasadam that is Vada garland, do I have to wear wet clothes still or should I complete it on 48 th day and then on 49th day I do the Vada garland pooja?

  47. Hello Astrologer, I have registered my name in a draw(lottery type but legal) and its been two years this is a daily quarterly and yearly draw for huge sum but I never won, can you guide me which specific Pooja I should to to win this, or if I can talk to you directly?

  48. If I go out of station then should I continue when I will come back and add those number of day??

  49. On the sindhoor that we apply to the base all the time or do we apply it for 48 days and it goes to the end of Hanumanji’s tail. The directions do not state where it should end at the 48th day or do we apply it to the base of the tail only for 48 days. Please clarify as I would like to start this puja

    • namaste Sarwan…i will tell u how i did it…i did it in mauritius bought sindoor that i got in pujashop…the sindoor i make a paste with ghee and the sindoor…i put it in a katori..i kept it aside my hanumaji murty..so morning i apply the sindoor from tail bottom(that is connect to his waist) to top that is near his head…but i apply it 5 times..so 5 times from bottom to top..and each time i recite hanumanji mantra..om hanumate namaha…then after i apllied plus mantra..i chant hanuman chalissa…but hanuman chalissa i recited morning and evening….so for 48 days i did it as a routine..i apply 5 times with mantra and also i specify that i am doing this tail puja for specific purpose…and i got success..but be veg and be brahmachari..and if possiible go do round of hanuman murti once a week in a mandir..u either do 5 times or 14 or 23 as u notice 14 =1+4 = 5 so this way you sure will get blessing of hanumanji…

      • Namaste Rastree, I bough the picture from Astro peep and it’s a bit different. So you started from bottom to top but the directions from Astro peep say start from the. Are which is the starting point of his tail. So would it be start from the base and end at the end of the tail. That is the clarification I need.

    • namaste sarwan…yes start base the tail touching waist then go to tail top..include the hair part also…hope this help…
