Ramleela is a traditional Indian theatrical performance that recounts the story of Lord Rama, as described in the epic Ramayana. It is a dramatic reenactment of the life and adventures of Lord Rama, his wife Sita, and his loyal companion Hanuman.
Ramleela performances typically take place during the festival of Navratri, leading up to Dussehra (Vijayadashami), which is usually in the months of September and October. These performances are held in various cities and towns across India, with some of the most famous ones in places like Ayodhya, Varanasi, and Delhi.
The duration of a Ramleela performance can vary, but it usually spans over several days or even weeks. Each night, a segment of Lord Rama's life is depicted, culminating with the victory over the demon king Ravana on Dussehra.
