The great Indian epic, the Ramayana written by Maharishi Valmiki talks extensively about Lord Rama & his consort Maa Sita. Valmikiji very delicately defined the noble character of Maa Sita, her sincerity, devotion & sacrifice which made her an ideal woman. Her steadfastness to her beliefs was remarkable even though her life was full of pathos, agony and suffering. It was at Sita Marhi where she descended into the lap of Mother Earth.

     According to Indian mythology, Sitamarhi has got immense significance, because it was here that Lord Rama’s wife Maa Sitaji was abandoned, gave birth to Luv & Kush and descended into the lap of Mother Earth forever. The only existing Valmiki Ashram on the banks of the river Ganges is located here. Sitamarhi thus carries deep religious values and significance and is considered a holy ‘Teerth’ like Prayagraj & Kashi. Today, here stands a magnificent and beautiful Shree Sita Samahit Temple visited by thousands of pilgrims everyday with deep faith and reveranice.

     Since ancient times, India has been the fountainhead and torch-bearer of knowledge and learning. The exalted teachings enshrined in the Vedas are universally appealing and benefit the entire humanity. Apart from these, we have the two great Epics –‘The Ramayana’ written by Maharishi Valmiki, and ‘The Mahabharata’ written by Maharishi Ved Vyas. In the Ramayana, Maharishi Valimiki has given a detailed account of Lord Rama and his consort Maa Sita. He very delicately defined the nobility of Maa Sita and her sincerity, devotion and sacrifice which made her an ideal woman. Sitaji’s life is full of pathos, agony and suffering. In the entire mythology of India, no other woman has excelled Sitaji in her purity, love and sacrifice. In Maharishi Valmiki’s Ramayana, a place near Allahabad called Sitamarhi is where Sitaji is said to have descended into the lap of Mother Earth forever. This sacred spot is very near to Valmikiji’s Ashram on the banks of holy Ganges. At this place, one feels vibrations of peace & bliss along with the feeling that there exist the blessings of Maa Sita.

     Once the place was visited by Swami Jitendranand Tirth and he had desired that a very magnificent memorial to Sitaji be built here. The Sita Samahit temple stands exactly on the mound where Bhagwati Sitaji descended into Mother Earth. This was built with the kind help of Shri. Satya Narain Prakash Punj, promoter of Punj Lloyd Limited, New Delhi who was inspired by his mother. Within the campus of the main temple there exists temples of Maa Sita & Lord Shiva. There also stands 108 ft. high statue of Ram Bhakt Hanuman installed on an artificial rock of 20 ft. Under this hillock there is a cave having small temple of Hanumanji.

Sitamarhi is a historical place of immense significance and is being visited by large number of pilgrims with great faith and devotion. It is one of the five ‘Teerths’ (holy places) in Poorvanchal which are Prayagraj, Sitamarhi,Sarnath. Vindhyavasini & Kashiraj, all can be visited within 3 days.
