Janakpur: Located in the Terai region, Janakpur is famous for its temples and the numerous ponds which carry significant religious importance. This is an important historical and pilgrimage site of Nepal.
The city is situated about 123 kilometres south-east of Kathmandu, and 20 kilometres from the Indian border. Historically, Janakpur was called Mithilanchal, the centre of the ancient Maithil culture. The Hindu epic Ramayana is the most important historical reference to Janakpur. It is believed that Lord Rama’s wife Sita Devi (also called Janaki) is said to have been the princess of Videha. Her father, King Janak of Nepal, found baby Sita in a furrow of a field and raised her as his daughter.
As Sita grew up, the king announced that she should be wed by whoever was able to string the divine bow of Lord Shiva. Though many royal suitors tried, Lord Rama, prince of Ayodhya, alone could even lift the bow.
Lord Buddha, founder of Buddhism, and Vardamana Mahavira, the 24th and final Tirthankara of the Jain religion, are also said to have lived in Janakpur.
The best period to visit Janakpur is from September to March when there is pleasant weather and several festivals fall during the time.
