PHULHER

As for the routine of the rituals, the deities are daily bathed morning and evening and offering Prasad and Arti follows this. So far as facilities for visitors are concerned, there are no dharmashalas or rest sheds near the temple and in the village. No one has thought of building them despite the relatively isolated nature of the locality. Visitors generally stay under the trees and in the huts of pandas, who charge money for affording shelter. The troubles of the pilgrims and visitors can well be imagined. It may be mentioned that a goodproportion of the pilgrims is from Nepal.

This Girija temple, with its immemorial tradition of Sita meeting Rama for the first time and the subsequent marriage of all the four sons of king Dasharatha of Ayodhya to the four daughters of King Janaka, prompts us to make a few observations on the enduring impact of the Rama-Sita cult which has permeated Hindu India through Mithila. It is said that the sage Vishwamitra took Sri Rama- chandra and Lakshmana to the court of King Janaka at Janakpur where Rama broke the bow and Sita garlanded him.

The Malyadan by Sita completed the marriage, though the father of the bride- groom was not present at the time. Later the formal invitation to King Dasharatha was sent and he came with the other sons. As Janaka and his brothers had threemore daughters, they were given in marriage to the three sons of King Dasharatha.
