Importance of Sita Navami

Although the birth anniversary of Mata Sita is celebrated on the Navami tithi in Shukla Paksha during the month of Vaishakh, but in some parts of India, this event is also celebrated on the Phalgun Krishna Ashtami. However in Ramayana, both the dates are considered correct in regards to the incarnation of Maa Sita. Not only in India but also in Nepal, Sita Navami is celebrated with great pomp. 

Lord Sri Rama himself is considered as the embodiment of Lord Vishnu, whereas Sita Mata is known to be the manifestation of Goddess Lakshmi. This is why just like Ram Navami, Sita Navami is also observed with great fervour as an auspicious event. Anyone worshipping Maa Sita and Lord Shri Rama together on this day attains the blessings of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi as well.
