Overview

Janakpur is an important pilgrimage site for Hindus due to its connection with the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. Goddess Sita is believed to be born here and it is also the place of her marriage with Lord Ram. Janakpur also possesses more than seventy ponds and it is also known as the City of Ponds.Thousands of tourists come to visit this holy city every year.

The city is well known for its rich cultural heritage, arts, language and literature. It is the heartland of the Mithila civilization, a melting pot of diverse cultures and religions.

 

Janaki Mandir is one of the most monumental temples in Janakpur. It is a temple dedicated to the Goddess Sita and was built in 1910 AD. The Mandir is popularly called Nau Lakha Mandir as the cost of the construction of the temple was Rupees Nine lakhs. It was built by Queen Vrisha Bhanu of Tikamgarh. This temple was designated as a UNESCO heritage site in the year of 2008.

 

It is built in a blend of Islamic and Hindu architecture. It is also considered a model for Mughal architecture in Nepal. The temple is built in an area of 4860 sq. feet and it is 50 meters high. There are a total of 60 rooms in the temple. It is a three-storied structure made of white marble and stone which eludes a beautiful white base look.  There are floral designs carved on the doors, passages, pillars and ceilings in beautiful colors and colored glasses and beautiful windows decorated with intricate latticework. 

 

According to the legend, King Janak ruled the Videha Kingdom during the Ramayana period. Janaki also called Sita Vaidehi, Maithili was the daughter of King Janak. It is said that she was found while performing ritualistic ploughing during a Yagna. As such she was called the daughter of the earth who was adopted by King Janak and his wife Sunaina. 

 

Svayamvar, in ancient times, was practiced for royal marriages in which a girl of marriageable age chose a husband from a group of suitors.  According to the practice Svayamvar was held to choose a courageous and strong groom for the Princess. During the Svayāmvar princes from far and wide had come to win the princess’s hand in marriage. The princes were given certain tasks for the test of their bravery and intelligence. From among the princes, Lord Rama of Ayodhya was successful in completing all the tasks and was thus selected by Sita /Janaki as her husband.  

 

Lord Ram is supposed to be the Avatar of Lord Vishnu and Sita as Avatar of Mata Lakshmi. They are the central character in the Sanskrit epics of ancient Hindu scriptures and important text of Hinduism, the” Ramayana”. 

 

Goddess Sita is considered as an ideal example of dedication, self-sacrifice, courage and purity. She is also a Goddess who blesses the land with good crops according to the Rig Veda. She is worshipped with devotion for a good harvest.

 

In 1657 a golden statue of the Goddess Sita was found at this holy site by Sannyasi Shurkishordas. Sita is said to have lived on this site. He was the great poet-saint who preached the Sita Upanishad Philosophy and is said to be the founder of the present-day Janakpur. Thereafter in the year 1910 AD, the Queen Vrisha Bhanu of Tikamgarh built this present day Janaki Mandir on the same site with the total cost of Rupees nine lakhs. 

 

Ram Navami the birth anniversary of Lord Ram the husband of goddess Janaki is celebrated with great devotion and reverence by the Hindus here. Vivah Panchami the day commemorating the marriage of Lord Ram with Goddess Janaki is also celebrated with grandeur.
