Vivah Panchami Significance
Vivah Panchami holds great significance as the marriage of Lord Rama and Goddess Sita is revered as a symbol of an ideal marital relationship based on love, trust, respect, and devotion. It is deeply rooted in the epic Ramayana, which narrates the marriage of Lord Rama, the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu, to Sita, an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi. The day is observed as the Vivaha Utsava of Sita and Rama in temples and sacred places associated with Rama, such as the Mithila region of Nepal and Ayodhya of India. In Nepal’s Janakpurdham, thousands of pilgrims arrive from across the world to visit this iconic occasion.
