A dramatized version of Ramayana, called Ramlila, is enacted on stage every year during the time of Navratra festivals in India. There are a number of places where Ramlila is organized on a very big scale, one of such places is the Ramlila Grounds of Delhi. Nonetheless, the Ramlila of Ramnagar has all together a different appeal to it. In the month of October annually, this small town of Benaras comes alive with the organization of Ramlilas. This place is playing host to such an event for even more than a century. This place even leaves behind the modern Ramlilas of today.
