About Janakpur Tour:
The religious and cultural tour package, Janakpur Tour trip combines a visit to Janaki Temple, Ram Sita Bibaha Mandap, Ram Mandir, Dhanush Sagar and many more. According to historical sources, Janakpur also known as Janakpurdham was the capital of an ancient Mithila Kingdom where the emperor king Janak was ruled.
As mentioned in Hindu epic, Ramayana, he found a baby girl in a furrow then named her Sita and raised her as his daughter. Sita is believed to be an incarnation of goddess Laxmi.
When she was sixteen, king Janak offered her in marriage to anyone who was able to lift the divine bow of Shiva which was left at the northeast of Janakpur a thousand years before. Many royal princes tried it but could not even move it.
On that occasion, the prince of Ayodhya Kingdom, Rama became able to lift the bow and surprisingly broken into three parts. One part penetrated into the land, another flew over, and the third one had fallen into Dhanusa spot. Therefore, this place is worshipped as Dhanusha Dham.
