"Janakpur tour in Nepal is a religious tour to visit the birthplace of Hindu ideal Queen Sita. Once in an ancient time, Janakpur was the Headquarter or capital city of the Mithila Pradesh and the home town of the Sita, Lord Ram’s concert. Janakpur is very popular for the Janaki Mandir as well as Mithila culture."
Janakpur Dham is one of the most important religious pilgrimage sites for the Hindu Devotees and renowned as the birthplace of Janaki (Goddess Sita), the consort of Rama. Janakpur is the headquarters of Dhanusha district and it was named after King Janak. It is at a distance of 380 kilometers from Kathmandu. In 1811 A.D the magnificent Janaki Mandir was built by the Queen Maharani Brishabhanu Kunwari Devi of Tikamgarh (India) as a mark of devotion to Janaki (Goddess Sita). The marriage anniversary of Lord Rama and Sita is solemnized in Janakpur every year on Vivah Panchami day which falls in December. This is one of the biggest festivals of this region attended by hundreds and thousands of devotees from Nepal and India. A place known as Dhanusha Dham is near Janakpur town which connects with the great Hindu epic Ramayana. According to the epic, one of the three pieces of the Great Bow that Lord Rama broke to win Sita's hand in marriage fell on this site - in present-day Dhanusha Dham.
