Celebrated on the last day of Chaitra Navaratri, Ram Navami marks the birth of Lord Ram. According to the Hindu Mythology, Lord Ram is the reincarnation of Lord Vishnu and he was born on the ninth day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Chaitra.
To seek the blessings of Lord Ram on this auspicious day, thousands of devotees across the state made a beeline outside temples. Special rituals marked the occasion- starting with a ‘Mangal Alati’ in the wee morning hours, followed by Sringar Alati, Ram Charita Manas, Nabanna Parayana Purnahuti and Homa Yagyna.
Devotees in large numbers also thronged to the famous Ram Mandir in capital city Bhubaneswar to offer prayers.
Elaborate security arrangements have been put up by the Commissionerate Police for the occasion.
