It is said that Lord Rama moves to the forest with his empty feet without wearing any sandals. When Bharat went to forest to bring him back to Ayodhya but returns with Lord Rama's sandals (Paduka).

So my question where from the sandals came while Lord Rama didn't wear any sandals?

  • Where did you get that Lord Rama did not wear sandals?

It is ridiculous to use television serials as sources for Ramayana.

Rama was asked to take on the garb of a mendicant. A mendicant's footwear consists of two pieces of hardwood with a knob on each such that it can be held between the big toe and first toe.

Rama gave these to Bharatha such he could rule the kingdom as Rama's liege.
