Vadvanal Stotra is a prayer dedicated to Hanuman. It was composed by Vibhishana, the brother of Ravana who was given refuge by Bhagavan Sri Ram. As per the story in vogue, Vibhishna was an ardent devotee of Sri Ram and Hanuman.

After becoming the king of Lanka, he used to remember them always in his prayers. Whenever he came across any difficulties in his life, he used to pray to Hanuman and Lord Ram.
