Sri Ram Navami is celebrated on 15th April, 2016 in order to commemorate the birth of Lord Rama who was the seventh incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu. Rama Nawami is the Hindu festival, celebrating the birth of
Sri Rama to King Dasharatha and Queen Kausalya in Ayodhya. The holy day falls in the Shukla Paksha on the Navami, the ninth day of the month of Chaitra in the Hindu calendar. Thus it is also known as Chaitra Masa Suklapaksha Navami, and marks the end of the nine-day Chaitra-Navaratri (Vasanta Navaratri) celebrations. Rama Navami is one of the most important Hindu festivals. This year it is celebrated on 15th April 2016.

Although, this day is celebrated as Lord Rama’s Birthday, his wedding with his wife Sita also falls on the same day and hence, great celebrations will be organized all over the country especially in the Southern part of India in which a traditional wedding/ marriage ceremony of the pair will be organized in pandals and temples.
