- According to Ramayana, King Janaka had built an exquisitely beautiful Vivaha Mandap (Pavilion), decorated with celestial gems and jewels and celebrated the marriage ceremony of Rama–Janaki by placing them on a golden throne installed in it.
- From that very time this site is known as Vivaha-Mandap. It is located at Janakpurdham of Dhanusha District. The Vivaha Mandap is situated on the north of Janaki temple. The various artistic idols placed in it give us the reminiscence of its ancient grandeur and the significance of the wedding of Rama–Janaki. This newly built Vivaha Mandap was inaugurated by His Majesty King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev in January, 1986.
