Janaki Mandir: The Birth place of Goddess Sita | Janakpur Nepal
Janakpur is one of the major cities of Nepal popular for its religious and tourism significance. It is located in the Dhanusa district and is about 375km far from the capital city Kathmandu. It is accessible via both roadways and airways. We, being enticed by this facilitated city flew for about 35 minutes to reach there.
This legendary city with great ancient, religious, and historical reservations has still maintained its grandeur in contemporary society as well. Intellectual ascetics still visit Janakpur with great honor. Janakpur was the capital of the ancient Mithila state and it was named after the then intellectual emperor king, Janak. Famous for the philosophies of ideal king Janak and the godly incarnation of his daughter Sita, Janakpur is regarded as the center of knowledge and wisdom. There is still some remaining of the historical period that we followed and reached there.
Built with the proper adjustment of Hindu and Muslim art, Janaki Temple is a popular and artistic temple at Janakpur. Every year, thousands of tourists come to visit this highly artistic temple. There are several attractive and artistic rooms, worship rooms, pavilion, and store places inside the temple. This temple covers an area of 4,860 sq. ft and it is 50 ft. tall. It is the birthplace of goddess Sita and Lord Ram - Sita got married at this sacred place. An Indian queen has spent nine hundred thousand (9 Lakhs) to built this temple so it is also called Nau Lakhe Mandir.
According to the mythological story, there was a divine bow of Shiva but no one could string the bow. Once Sita easily lifts that bow then king Janak realized that Sita is not an ordinary human and announced she should wed by whoever was able to string the divine bow of Shiva. Though many suitors tried no one could succeed so King became depressed.
At that time, the son of the King of Ayodhya, Ramchandra came to lift the bow. At first, no one trusts that he could lift it up but he alone lift the bow and it suddenly broke into 3 pieces. The first piece flew over, the second piece penetrated into land and the third piece fell into Dhanusa spot which is even worshipped today as Dhanusha Dham (Pilgrimage). That place is still believed to be there in the middle of Dhanusagar.
King Janak became very happy and organized a big marriage celebration for Ram and Sita. This is why we still celebrate the Vivah Panchami festival in Magh Sukla Panchami. On this occasion, many pilgrims, tourists, priests, minks come to visit Janakpur. On this day, the idols of Ram and Sita are rotated around Janakpur city and people still participate in the occasion as members of the marriage procession of Lord Ram and Goddess Sita.
Not only in Vivaha Panchami but there is also a big fair in the festivals like Rama Navami, Holi. Rama Navami is celebrated on the auspicious occasion of the birthday of Lord Ram. Dhanusha Dham is 20 km far from Janaki Temple and pilgrims travel there by Jeep.
Apart from that, Ramananda Memorial has its own significance. There are marriage pavilion, Hanuman Gadi, Sita Kunda (Pond), Rani Pati, Ratnasagar, Bihar Kunda, Gangasagar, Agni Kunda, Udayaswor Mahadev, Praneshwor, Kupeshwor, and other popular sacred sites at Janakpurdham premises. Janakpur is an important place from a historical, religious as well as tourism perspective.
