Ram Janki Vivah Utsav is celebrated every year on Vivah Panchmi at Basukinath Temple. Vivah Panchami is a Hindu festival celebrating the marriage of Ram and Sita. It is observed on the fifth day of the Shukla paksha or waxing phase of moon in the Margashirsha month (November – December) as per Hindu calendar. The day is observed as the Vivah Utsav of Sita and Rama in temples and sacred places associated with Sri Rama. Late Pandit Nainalal Jha, Pradhan Tirth Purohit Baba Basukinath, started the festival of “Ram Janki Vivah Utsav” in Basukinath. He used to celebrate this festival with lot of enthusiasm. A baraat which included elephants and horses participated in the procession. He used to call it “Palki Utsav”. Presently it is taken forward by his son Pandit Tara Kant Jha.
