Prime Minister Modi will also hear verses from the Ranganatha Ramayan which is in Telugu. Lepakshi holds a special place in Ramayana. PM Modi’s visit just 6 days before the Pran Pratishtha ceremony of the grand Ram temple in Ayodhya holds a special significance. 

It is said that Lepakshi is the place where Jatayu fell after being wounded by Ravan while trying to protest Goddes Sita during the abduction. The dying Jatayu, who told Lord Rama that Ma Sita was taken south by Ravan, was then granted Moksha by Lord Ram.

The visit to Lepakshi comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Shree Kala Ram Mandir in Nashik. A few days back, PM Modi visited Panchvati, situated on the banks of the Godavari river in Nashik. He offered prayers at the Kala Ram Mandir and heard the Marathi verses relating to Ayodhya arrival of Lord Ram.
