In Sikhism, the Hindu god Rama is referred to as Sri Ram Chander, and the story of Hanuman as a Siddha has been influential.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, after the birth of the martial Sikh Khalsa movement in 1699, Hanuman was the inspiration and object of reverence by the Khalsa.

Some Khalsa regiments were brought to the battlefield with the Hanuman image. Sikh texts such as the Hanuman Natak by Hirda Ram Bhalla, and the Das Gur Katha by Kavikan describe Hanuman's heroic deeds.

According to Louis Fenech, Sikh tradition states that Guru Gobind Singh was a beloved reader of the Hanuman drama.
