Indrajit, who defeated the great god Indra in battle, had magical powers and deadly weapons in his armoury. He used them with terrible accuracy and effect.
To revive the princes, the rare herbs of the Sanjeevi Mountain in the Himalayas were needed. Hanuman who was sent to fetch them could not locate them. So he uprooted the whole mountain and carried it aloft to Lanka.
