Trip Descriptions

Janakpur is more commonly called Janakpurdham, & is a city in Nepal which is situated in the Tarai at 300m from sea level. Janakpurdham is the administrative headquarters of the Dhanusa District of Janakpur Zone and has a population of approximately 85,000. The city is located about 400 km south-east of Kathmandu valley, 20 km from the Indian border at 26° 42' 44" N, 085° 55' 18" E. Janakpurdham has a major tourists industry due to its significance in Hindu religion.

In Janakpur, around Janaki temple, there is generally more flow of Indian tourists than the Nepalese themselves. The number of Nepalese visiting to Janaki temple is one hundred thousand whereas the number of Indians visiting is approximately five hundred thousand. The temple is situated right in the middle of Janakpur bazaar. The temple looks similar to that of the palace itself. Inside the temple, there are many sculptures and images of gods and goddesses such as: Guru Vashistha, Sadananda, Sunayna, Ram, Laxman, Bharat, Shatrughan, Sita, Janak and so on. The temple Tikamgadh was built by an Indian queen Bhanu Brish Kumari in 1968 B.S.

Janaki temple is also called ‘Naulakhe Temple' as the cost was nine hundred thousand rupees to build the structure. It is believed that when the queen came to the temple she gave birth to a baby boy so she constructed the temple to make it a larger and a better one. It is also believed that King Janak found Goddess Sita in the same place where the temple is situated currently. Sita was found beneath a piece of land while the King was digging with a golden plough. There is also a marriage area in Janaki Temple. The temple also has a free entrance zone for visitors. In the area for marriage it is said that Lord Ram and Goddess Sita got married in this particular area. We can see sculptures of family members of Lord Ram and Goddess Sita. This is why Janakpur is known for the Ram and Janaki Temple.
