Sita Navami

Sita Navami marks the birth anniversary of Ma Sita, the consort of Sri Ram. The other names by which people identify this day are Sita Jayanti and Janaki Navami. Sita Navami falls on the Navami (ninth day) of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in the Vaisakha month. Sita Navami celebration is very popular among the Hindu married women. Observing a fast on this day is said to bless their husbands with a long life.

The birth of Ma Sita

Ma Sita is considered as an incarnation of Goddess Maha Lakshmi. Sita Navami is celebrated exactly one month later than Ram Navami. Once when King Janaka of Mithila ploughed his field for performing a Yajna, he found baby Sita from the soil encased in a golden casket. Sita grew in the palace of King Janaka as his daughter. Later Sita was given in marriage to Sri Ram when the prince broke the mighty bow and won the contest.

Celebrations at Ayodhya

Sita Navami or Sita Jayanti is a grand celebration at Ayodhya, the birth place of Lord Sri Ram in the State of Uttar Pradesh. The other places where this day is celebrated are Bhadrachalam in Andhra Pradesh, Sita Samahit Sthal located at Bihar and the highly famed Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. The top highlights of this festival are darshan of Ma Sita at the temples, holy bath and puja to the idol of Ma Sita and Sita Arati. Huge processions are also organized in some parts of the country in praise of Ma Sita.
