PHULHER

Janakpur is about 40 miles to the north of this temple. The Nepal-India border is only one mile from here. Harlakhi, which is 4 miles north, is the nearest market from here and has a post office, a block office and a police station. Passenger buses ply from Laheriasarai to Harlakhi via Benipatti but the service does not operate in the rainy season. Visitors generally leave the buses, ekkas or rickshaws at Hisar and walk the distance to the Girija temple at Phulher village.

The legend is woven round Sri Rama- chandra and Sita Devi. Sita, the daughter of King Janaka, who had his capital at Janakpur close by, used to come to Phulher village, collect sweet-smelling blossoms and offer them to the Girija deity at the temple. The tank nearby is still pointed out as the pool where Sita would have her bath, sit by and make thegarlands of flower for offering to the deity.

It is here that one day Sita had repaired with her Sakhi (companion) and Sri Ramachandra had also gone there with Lakshmana and was plucking flowers. The bashful Sita's eyes fell on Sri Rama- chandra and Sri Ramachandra too was captivated by the coy girl.
