Sita Bibaha Panchami

Religious in Janakpur

By far the most interesting time to visit Janakpur is during the fifth day of the waxing moon in November/December, when tens of thousands of pilgrims descend on the town to celebrate the re-enactment of Sita’s marriage to Rama (also known as Vivaha Panchami). There are processions and performances of scenes from the Ramayana in the streets.
