Ram Nawami Today

Ram Nawami, the birthday of Lord Ram, a divine figure in Hinduism, is being observed throughout the country with religious devotion and gaiety on Wednesday.
Hindu devotees celebrate this festival by observing fast, singing devotional songs and offering prayers at their homes and nearby temples.
Thousands of devotees, some from India, have flocked to Janakpurdham to offer their prayers at the Ram Janaki Temple in Dhanusha district to mark the festival. Ancient Janakpur was the birthplace of Sita, the better half of Lord Ram.
Devotees have organized special religious functions and bhajan (hymns) sessions at the premises of the temples across the nation. Ram devotees visit temples from early morning to offer their prayers to the Lord Ram who is said to have defeated demonic King Ravana.
