Goddess Anjana Mata
Anjana Mata was the mother of Hanuman, one of the Best Part of the Ramayana. According to one version of the story, Anjana was an apsara named Punjikastala, who came to earth and married Kesari, a monkey chief. Vayu, god of the wind, carried the divine power of Lord Shiva to Anjana's womb, and thus Hanuman was himself an incarnation of Lord Shiva.
