Ramayana Hindu Diety

Ram was originally a Hindu deity, with roots in the Indus Valley civilization. The word rama means "he who roars" and is derived from the old Indo-Aryan ram meaning "to be strong". He was one of seven deities, revered by Hindus for over 3100 years. Rama is considered an Avatar (incarnation) of Vishnu, the Supreme Being in Hinduism.

Valmiki, the great Indian poet and playwright is said to have first written a 4.5-thousand verse epic poem titled Ramayana (also spelled as Ramaayan) which was later condensed into 24000 verses by an unknown author.

It is believed that the Ramayana was originally written in Sanskrit by Valmiki. The original version of Rama's life, written 7000 years ago, has been lost but a lot of versions have been composed over time.

Though Rama is considered one of the incarnations of Vishnu, his story predates him as a Hindu deity and has its roots in ancient Indian folklore. The Ramayana was first narrated to Valmiki by Lord Brahma himself.

The story is about a man named Rama (an avatar of Vishnu) who is banished from his throne and exiled by one of the most powerful kings for 14 years, along with his wife Sita.

After 14 years of exile, Rama and his wife return to the kingdom they were exiled from, only to find that their place had been taken by someone else.
