This year, Ram Navami 2020 was observed on April 2, across India. This is an auspicious festival in the Hindu religion, which is celebrated in India, on a very large scale. The day mainly has two major significances, the first one is that on this day Lord Ram’s birthday is celebrated and the other being the wedding anniversary of Lord Rama and Ma Sita.
As per to Hindu religion, Ram Navami is one of the major festivals which is celebrated with great ceremony, especially in the north and south India. Lord Rama is considered to be the seventh avatar or incarnation of Lord Vishnu among the latter’s ten, which is also known as the Dashavatara, that he undertook for the demolition of evil.
