Food is an essential component of any trip. Enjoy traditional Mithila cuisine in Janakpur, which includes rice, lentil soup, vegetable curry, taruwa, tirauli, phulauri, fish curry, and curd. Such a lunch, however, is not widely accessible at the town's hotels. The meal must be ordered ahead of time.

It's 25 kilometers south of Dhalkebar on the east-west highway. When you arrive in Janakpur, you can easily find the temple in the heart of the city. Unless you are terrified of the blistering heat of the summer in the months of April through July, you can visit any time of year. Jatahi, the nearest Nepal-India border crossing, located about 14 kilometers south of Janakpur. Even with India, the historic site has a well-developed road network.

It was built on the site where Goddess Sita was born. The attraction is now a religiously significant monument and a heritage site, but it is still used by followers as a temple. Pilgrims and travelers from all over the world go to this sacred Hindu temple during the Vivah Panchami festival in November and December. It is the city's annual event commemorating Sita and Rama's marriage with several spiritual rites and rituals. Around the temple grounds, you can sense the euphoric moment as well as spiritual environment.
