    Yes the origin of Monkey King is from Hanuman, just like the nowadays famous laughing Buddha is in reality a Chinese version of Kubera(also called goblin with gold in European folklore). China is good in copy-paste and even copied Vedic Vastu Shastra and repackaged as Feng Shui. – user22634 Dec 30 '20 at 8:29
