Rama's journeys were said to have taken place in the Indian Subcontinent.

Understand[edit]

In the Hindu religion, Rama is an important god, an avatar of Vishnu, the Preserver in the Hindu trinity. Rama is depicted in the Ramayana, one of the most important Hindu scriptures, as having undertaken four major journeys.

The first one was from Ayodhya, India to Janakpur, Nepal.

In the Ramayana, Rama's wife Sita, an incarnation of Vishnu's consort Lakshmi, was captured by the evil king Ravana and imprisoned in his fortress on the island of Lanka, which is widely believed to be what is today Sri Lanka. The monkey god Hanuman would destroy Ravana's fortress by flying over from the mainland and setting it on fire, before Rama and his remaining troops built a land bridge and crossed over to Lanka, where they would emerge victorious and successfully rescue Sita from Ravana's imprisonment.
