Ram Sita Vivah Story

King Dasharath was once approached by Maharishi Vishwamitra requesting him to allow Ram to guard his Yagna. King Dasharath reluctantly agreed and allowed Prince Ram and Lakshman to go with sage Vishwamitra. Vishwamitra successfully completed his Yagna and returned to Mithila along with Ram and Laxman. During that time Mithila’s ruler Janak had organised a Swayamvar for Princess Sita.

The Swayamvar task for all participants was to lift and string a massive bow, Shiva Dhanusha which was laid resting on the ground. However, it was such a heavy and enormous bow that participants failed to lift it. Sage Vishwamitra then asked Ram, who strung the bow, breaking into two. King Janak was extremely delighted and got Sita married to Lord Ram.

Even until today, Ram Sita marriage is celebrated with a lot of vigour as their marriage stands as the symbol of strength, devotion, duty and Love.

On the auspicious occasion of Vivah Panchami, we wish you an abundance of happiness, peace of mind!
