The Ram Nawami festival is a celebration of the birthday of the Hindu God Ram. Lord Ram, who was born to the then King of Ayodhya, Dashrath, and his first queen Kaushalyawati, is considered the seventh incarnation of God Vishnu.
As per Hindu mythology, it was God Ram who triumphed over Ravana, the then King of Lanka, a symbol of demonic and evil powers, and established peace and harmony in the society.
Ram, who is considered an ideal man and the embodiment of perfect manhood and high morale, was born in the Treta Yug for the protection of virtue.
Devotees visit the temples of Lord Ram and perform special pooja on the occasion of this festival.
