Valmiki is celebrated as the harbinger-poet in Sanskrit literature and the author of Ramayana, the first epic poem.

At nearly 24,000 verses, the Ramayana is one of the largest ancient epics in world literature. The poem revolvles around the life of Rama, a major Hindu deity and legendary prince of the Kosala Kingdom. It follows Rama's banishment from the kingdom by his father, King Dasharatha. It then narrates his travels across India with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, the kidnapping of Sita by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka, Rama's battles with Ravana and his eventual return home to be crowned king.

Valmiki lived in the first millennium BCE and is believed to be the contemporary of Lord Rama.
