In Ramayana, where it is mentioned under what circumstances did Urmila - Wife of Lakshmana die ? Because I googled and couldn't find a valid answer to it. We know that she also opposed her own husband for supporting Rama and for taking Sita to forest.

    the second part of this post Is she the most underrated mythological character in Ramayana is really opinion-based. People may claim same about the wives of Bharata/Shtrughana/Sugriv and so on...Hard to answer those, IMHO. Apr 24 '16 at 6:10
  • I agree about the under-rated character.. Anasuya (wife of Atri), a great pativrata, calls Sita a pativrata. Sita, in turn calls Urmila a pativrata, because at least Sita could be with her husband in the forest most of the time, but Lakshmana left Urmila in the kingdom, so she was away from him for 14 years yet was fully devoted to him, sleeping on the floor etc.

In Valmiki Ramayana, it is mentioned that no woman become widow in Rama Rajya. So I think sisters of Sita died earlier than their husbands. Please refer shloka 99

While Rama was ruling the kingdom, there were no widows to lament, nor there was no danger from wild animals, nor any fear born of diseases.

  • Should we take it literally?
