Rama Navami


Lord Rama appeared on this planet in Treta yuga on the 9th day in the month of Chaitra (March-April) along with his three younger brothers Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna. Interestingly, Rama’s wedding with Sita devi also happened on the same date.

In the evening an Abhishek ceremony is performed for the small Deities of Sita, Rama, Lakshmana and Hanuman. Sumptuous prasadam is distributed to all the devotees.
