The story of Rama, the righteous prince of Ayodhya, is so powerful and well-loved that it has been told and retold many times and in many languages over centuries. There have been several retellings of this great Indian epic especially for children. But none of these versions adhere faithfully to the oldest version of Rama’s story, Valmiki’s Ramayana, composed about 2,500 years ago. This illustrated version falls back on the original composition and retells the story of Rama, the beloved prince of Ayodhya, his virtuous and beautiful wife Sita, and the demon-king Ravana who attained salvation at the hands of Rama—an avatar of Lord Vishnu.
