Budhwa Mangal On Last Tuesday in Bhadrapad Month

After destroying Ashoka Vatika and killing of a son of Ravana, Hanuman allowed himself to be captured. When Hanuman was brought before Ravana, Hanuman advised the demon king to follow the path of Dharma and release Mata Sita. But Ravana did not listen to the advice and ordered the tail of Hanuman to be set on fire.

Hanuman then set Lanka on fire and gave a warning to Ravana about what is in store in future for him.

It is believed that 25 days after Budhwa Mangal, Ravana was killed on Dasara day.
