“Lovely structure and interesting to visit”
Review of Janaki Temple

Janaki Temple
Reviewed 5 August 2017

The building is huge and well decorated with all the colors and swirls, turrets, arches, etc. There are many rooms and only a few are open for tourists and pilgrims. There are some smaller side temples to see as well.

Janakpur in Nepal, fascinated me because of its ageless association with the epic Ramayana.

When I first saw pictures of the 'palatial' Janaki Temple on the internet, my mind was swept back to those holy times when a great philosopher-king Janaka ruled the kingdom and a great sage like Sri Sukadeva waited at his doorstep to obtain divine wisdom. I was eager to see Sita's birthplace in the 'then' kingdom of Mithila; the place where the 'Sita Swayamvara' was held and the 'Vivaha Vedika' where the Sita Kalyanam was performed in the presence of many great sages and saints like Vasishta and Vishwamitra.

I contacted Ganesh Neupane, President of Monterosa Treks and Travels, Khatmandu, and he arranged for our flight to and from Janakpur on July 13-14, 2016.

What my husband and I saw was more than I bargained for in the small town of Janakpur. The whole of July 13 was spent in visiting the holy temples and was topped by a beautiful 'Ganga Aarti' in the evening.

On the morning of July 14 we were driven to 'Dhanushadham', about 18 km from Janakpur, where a third part of the 'Shiv Dhanush' broken by SriRama, is worshipped.

If you wish to touch the holy ground of such importance, visit Janakpur . and you will come away with unforgettable memories.
