Recently Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi was in Nepal at the Janaki Temple in Janakpur which is supposed to be the birthplace of Goddess Sita and I came to know about this place due to the news coverage his visit got. But there is also a place in India known as Sitamarhi where Sita ji is believed to have been born according to local belief.

I know there are many such places related to Ramayan that have more than one contenders but does the Ramayan or any other scripture tells us clearly about the birthplace of Goddess Sita?

    Sitaji surfaced from the surface of the earth when Janaka was ploughing some (ritual) field in Mithila region...Both Janakpur and Sitamarhi were part of Mithila region...I believe the field was in Sitamarhi but she was brought up in Janakapur... – YDS May 20 '18 at 11:33
