The foremost attraction in Sitamarhi is unquestionably the sacred shrine in the name of Sita after whom the city has been named. The city has its footing on Hindu Mythology which teaches that goddess Sita devi was obtained to King Janaka while he was ploughing the fields. After Sita’s Marriage with lord Ram, The king had constructed a tank at the same spot where the child had appeared. He then put the stone figures of Ram, Sita and Lakshman to blotch the spot. This tank is now known as Janaki Kund and it situates south of the present temple.

As the passing of time the site failed into a jungle till the whole story was revealed to a Hindu ascetic by name Birbal Das by divine insight. He came down to Sitamarhi and cleared the forest. It is believed that this saintly man had constructed a temple there and started to worship Sitadevi.

But the temple today does not shown any signs of the ancient constructions. It is comparatively of modern origin, which is only of 100 years old. Sita devi is the chief deity and along with her, Lord Ram and Lakshman are also worshipped here. This temple is located in a prime spot near the bus station and hence it is very easy to get there.
