A musical presentation of the Ahiravan story was performed by the Cambodian Ramayana team. In this context, Ravana's brother Ahiravan takes Lord Shri Ram to Patal Lok by making him unconscious. Shri Hanuman goes to Patal Lok to bring Lord Shri Ram safely where Shri Hanuman meets his son Makardhwaj.
In the war, both would fight but there is no victory or defeat in it. In the end, Shri Hanuman brings back Lord Shri Ram. This incident of Ramayana was presented in a very soulful manner.
