Janaki Mandir (Nepali: जानकी मन्दिर) is a Hindu temple in JanakpurNepal, dedicated to the goddess Sita.[1] It is the primary temple of Maithali native indigenous to Nepal.

It is an example of 'Hindu-Rajput' Nepali architecture. It is often considered the most important model of Rajput architecture in Nepal. Fully built in bright white and constructed in an area of 4,860 sq. feet in a mixed style of Islamic and Rajput domes, the temple is 50 meters high. It is a three-storied structure made entirely of stone and marble. All its 60 rooms are decorated with the flag of Nepal, colored glass, engravings and paintings, with beautiful lattice windows and turrets. According to legends, King Janak ruled this area (called Mithila Desh) during the Ramayana period. His daughter Janaki (Sita), during her swyambar, had chosen Lord Rama as her husband, and become queen of Ayodhya. There marriage ceremony is believed to have occurred in the nearby Temple.
