Janakpur is a ruined city. Janakpur is situated in the northern skirts of the Mithila district. Janakpur is supposed to indicate the site of a city founded by one of the princes of that name.
Janakpur is the birthplace of Sita
, daughter of King Janaka
and wife of Lord Rama. It is also said to be the site of Lord Rama
and Sita's wedding. Lord Rama
won Sita by picking up Lord Shiva's bow and breaking it in Janakpur. The city is charged with a devotional mood and is an interesting holy city to visit. Janakpur is a web of mostly narrow streets, so it is difficult to know what direction one is going in.
