PREFACE

The legends associated with the temples have got a cherished place in the villages. Many of the songs that have been recited from generation to generation in marriages, or when the bride goes to her husband's place for the first time, centre round the legend's of Sri Ramchandra and Sita. The temple legends, particularly of North Bihar, have found expression in folksongs, folk-tales, ballads and proverbs. Even the social customs show the impact of such legends.

A son-in-law's place in the family in Mithila is certainly much higher than that of a son-in-law in Magadha or Anga and this is said to be due to the fact that Sri Ramchandra was a son-in-law of Mithila. In some cases the temple-legends have changed into stories that have found currency among the worshippers of the Godlings of Bihar. The Godlings of Bihar or the, Gramya Devatas are legion and some of the Godlings are the presiding deities of particular castes.
