Janaki Navami is also known as Sita Jayanti and is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Goddess Sita. Sita Mata is also known as Siya, Janaki, Maithili, Vaidehi, or Bhoomija. She is the central character in the Hindu epic Ramayana.

In the Hindu Religion, Goddess Sita is an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi who is the consort of Lord Vishnu and the Deity of wealth, prosperity and all luxuries. Sita Mata is considered to be the mother of all mortals and other living creatures. She is an embodiment of love, sacrifice, devotion, and purity.

She is also recognised for her patience and devotion towards her husband, Lord Shri Rama.

On this day, married women observe fast and pray to the Goddess for the long life of their husbands.
