Janakpur:- A Tourist Place of Mithila(Nepal)


 Janakpur is the capital of the ancient state of Mithila and the Janaki Temple, located in the center of the city, is well known in the Hindu Kingdom (Nepal). Sita (Janaki) the wife of the legendary hero Ram was born in Janakpur. Throughout the year, many pilgrims come to pay their respects to Ram and Sita who are the main religious attractions in Janakpur. The city is thronged by worshippers and visitors, especially during the festival of Bibah Panchami. This annual festival is celebrated on the occasion of Ram and Sita's marriage and their wedding ceremony is enacted throughout the week. During this period, the city is enlivened by the wedding festivities.

Ram and Sita are the two central characters of the great Hindu epic Ramayan. In the story, Ram strings a bow that originally belonged to Lord Shiva the destroyer and in the process, the bow breaks into three pieces. One piece flies up to heaven another falls down into the depths of the underworld, presently there is a huge pond called Dhanush Sagar above the spot. The third piece flies to present day Dhanushadham, about 40 kilometers from Janakpur. There, visitors will see huge rocks shaped liked a bow. Thus, after Ram's successful attempt to string the bow, Janaki's father, King Janak gives his daughter's hand in marriage to the brave prince of Ayodhya.










The most beautiful and impressive building is the Janaki Mandir in Janakpur, a temple to Sita, built of bright white marble. When you see it the first time, it seems unrealistic, like a beautiful fata morgana or movie-scene. 
This artistic marble temple popularly known as the Naulakha Mandir (meaning nine lakhs) dedicated to the divine couple. The cost for the construction of the temple was about the same amount of money: Rupees 9 Lakhs (900,000) and hence the name. Queen Vrisha Bhanu - of the Indian state of Tikamgarhm built the temple in 1910. 


Religious festivals, pilgrimages, and other festivities are held here on Bhivaha Panchami and Ram Nawami when thousands of local as well as Indian pilgrims gather for worship.
