The history of Sri Rama Navami is Lord Rama’s birthday was marked on this day and the king of Ayodhya, Dasharatha and his wife Kausalya are the parents to Lord Rama. Dashratha had three wives named Kausalya, Sumitra, and Kaikeyi. He had no children to take up his emperor in the future and he was very sorry for the people of Ayodhya. One day he was suggested by the great Rishi named Vasistha to do the Puthra Kamesti Yagna to achieve his dream for a child. After completion of Yagna, he gave a kheer to his three wives to get conceived.

On the 9th day of Chaitra month at noon, Kausalya gave birth to Lord Sri Ramachandra, Kaikeyi to Bharata and Sumitra to twin boys named Lakshmana and Shatrughna.
