PHULHER

Mithila had become famous under one of the King Janakas and the Brahman sage Yajna- valkya. The Puranas recite the story of Yajnavalkya, his guru Vaisampayana, and their great contribution asphilosophers and thinkers.But the popular mind of Hindu India does not worry about the Adhyatma Vidya of Yajnavalkya and King Janaka, but thinks of Mithila as the land where the sublime Sita, the idol of Indian woman hood, was born.

The Ramayana shall remain immortal, describing the life of Rama and Sita, who was the daughter of the King of Mithila, also known as Janaka. As mentioned, the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Puranas have all immortalized Mithila.

In the later years Mithila played an important role in the history of Buddhism and Jainism. Buddha had visited Mithila thrice and Mahavira, the 24th Tirthankara, was the son of a daughter of Mithila. Mahavira had frequented Vaisali and Mithila in propagating the creed of Jainism.
