Sita Navami 2024, Janaki Navami 2024

Sita Navami or Janaki Navami is celebrated as the birth day of Goddess Sita. Women who are married keep a fast on Sita Navami day and pray to Goddess Sita for the long lives of their husbands. Also known as Sita Jayanti or Seeta Jayanthi, Sita Navami is celebrated on Navami Tithi during Shukla Paksha period of the Vaishakha month. Goddess Sita was born in Pushya Nakshatra on Tuesday. Goddess Sita was married to Lord Rama. Rama was also born on Navami Tithi during Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month. Sita Jayanti occurs after one month of Sri Rama Navami in the Hindu calendar. Mata Sita, also known by the name of Janaki, was the adopted daughter of King Janaka of Mithila. Therefore as the father name was Janaka, Maa Sita was known by the name of Janaki and thus this day is also known as Janaki Navami. When King Janaka was ploughing the land to conduct a Yajna he found a baby girl inside a Golden casket. A ploughed land is called Sita thus King Janaka named the baby girl as Sita. It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi took birth as Sita in the Treta yug.
