The Marriage Age of Ram and Sita in Hinduism

📖Skanda Purana 2:30-8-9
The bow of Īśvara that was kept in the abode of Janaka, was broken. In his fifteenth year, O king, Rāma married the six-year old beautiful daughter of the king of Mithilā, Sītā who was not born of a womb. On getting Sītā, Rāghava became contented and happy.

  • According to this verse, Ram married Sita when she was 6 years old, and it is believed that Sita did not emerge from a mother’s womb but rather appeared miraculously. It is important to note that the idea that Sita did not emerge from a mother’s womb but rather appeared miraculously is a belief that is part of Hindu mythology. However, it is not based on historical or scientific evidence and cannot be verified. It is important to understand that mythology and beliefs may differ from factual evidence and should not be taken as historical or scientific truth.

After their marriage, Ram and Sita lived in Ayodhya for twelve years

📖Valmiki Ramayana Aranya Kanda Chapter 47 Verses 3-5 : I am the daughter of noble-souled Janaka, the king of Mithila, by name I am Seetha, and the dear wife and queen of Rama, let safety betide you. “On residing in the residence of Ikshvaku-s in Ayodhya for twelve years, I was in sumptuosity of all cherishes while relishing all humanly prosperities.

📖Valmiki Ramayana Book VI : Yuddha Kanda – Book Of War Chapter [Sarga] 116 Veres 16 My hand taken (by you as a bride) in our childhood was not duly recognized by you. My devotion, my chastity and all have been ignored by you.”


It is important to note According to the Hindu epic Ramayana, Sita was kidnapped by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka, after 12 years of living in Ayodhya with Rama. Rama, along with his brother Lakshmana, went on a mission to rescue Sita and fought a fierce battle against Ravana and his army in Lanka.
