Ram Navami 2020 is on 2nd April 2020, Thursday.


Lord Rama was born to King Dasharatha and Queen Kaushalya in Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh) on Navami Tithi during Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month. The birthday of Sri Rama is celebrated on this day with much fanfare and geity. Born at Madhyahna period (middle of Hindu day), Sri Ram's correct time of birth comes between 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM for every Indian city. Madhyahna period exists for six Ghatis (around 2 hours and 24 minutes) is the most auspicious time to perform Rama Navami Puja rituals. Madhyahna's mid-point marks the time when Shri Rama was born and devotees can be seen thronging temples and chanting the name of Rama symbolizing the very moment of Lord Rama's birth. Rama Navami is also spelled as Ram Navami.

People mistakenly think 12 p.m. as the correct time of birth for Lord Rama but as sunrise and sunset timings are different for every city, therefore exact time to celebrate birthday of Lord Rama falls between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
