Back when he was a child, Hanuman, the child of a sprite by the breeze god, attempted to fly up and get the Sun, which he confused with a fruit. Indra, the ruler of the divine beings, hit Hanuman with a thunderclap on the jaw (hanu), and thus the name was born. Whenever Hanuman kept on getting into mischief, strong sages reviled him to fail to remember his enchanted powers, for example, the capacity to fly or to turn out to be boundlessly enormous, until he was helped to remember them. Hanuman drove the monkeys to help Rama, a manifestation of the god Vishnu, recuperate Rama's better half, Sita, from the evil presence of Ravana, Lord of Lanka. Having been helped to remember his abilities by Jambavan, the lord of the bears, Hanuman crossed the waterway between India and Lanka in one jump, despite the endeavors of watery demonesses to stop him by gulping him or his shadow. He was found in Lanka, and his tail was set ablaze, however, he utilized that fire to torch Lanka. Hanuman additionally traveled to the Himalayas and brought back a mountain loaded with medicinal spices to cure the injured in Rama's military.
Hanuman is revered in temples dedicated to Lord Rama or in temples completely dedicated to him. The latter option is by and large swarmed by monkeys, who realize that they can't be abused there. In Hanuman temples throughout India, he shows up as a monkey with a red face who stands erect like a human. For his support of Rama, Hanuman is maintained as a symbol of all human commitment (bhakti).

Q1. Why is Lord Hanuman in the form of a monkey?
Hanuman was the child of Vayu, the divine force of the breeze, and Anjana, a heavenly fairy. It is a little unbelievable how the child of the breeze god and a fairy ended up being a monkey. The response is that Anjana once maddened a sage who reviled her that her son would be born into the world as a monkey.

While Lord Yama favored him with long and healthy life and everlasting status, Lord Surya empowered him to change his size voluntarily. Likewise, Lord Vishwakarma, the heavenly designer favored him with safety from every one of the war items that he made. Thus this large number of aids made Lord Hanuman so powerful.
