Was Hanuman actually homo erectus?

Recommended Posts


Homo erectus was quite prevalent in and around central India where the story of the Ramayana actually takes place. Hanumans tribe was said to be some of the last of their kind. The ramayan also describes them as having a distinct culture of their own.

Continuing on this thread. Hanuman is sometimes shown with a flute. One of things that homo Erectus was famous for was bamboo flutes. 

Valmiki also says this tribe lived in the caves around kishakinta (modern day Hampi in Karnataka) I’ll get to this shortly. Usually, apes, gorillas and monkeys don’t live in caves preferring the open fields and trees.
