Ram Darbar is known as a God Ram, legacy of Lord Rama, his wife Sita, brother Laxman and Lord Hanuman. Rama means 'one who permeates and who is present in everything and everyone' and is the reincarnation of God Vishnu. Rama is the model of reason, right action and commendable virtues. Sita is also regarded as an avatar of the Goddess Lakshmi, consort of Vishnu. When Vishnu took on human form as Rama, Lakshmi took on human form as Sita. The Ramayana is one of the most popular stories in the Hindu tradition.
As a young prince Rama was heroic warrior and won Sita as his wife after succeeding in the war. Cheated of his rightful role as successor to his father, the king, he got off into exile. Sita and his brother Lakshmana insisted in going with him. One day Sita got kidnapped by the ten-headed demon Ravana and carried off to his stronghold in the island of Lanka. Helped by Hanuman, the god-king of the monkeys, Rama eventually defeated Ravana and his army in battle and rescued Sita. They then returned to their kingdom where Rama was given his rightful place as a King.
