How Did Sita and Rama Reunite In Hindu Mythology and How Did Sita Prove That Her Virtue Was Pure?

When Sita was freed at last, Rama coldly ignored her because he suspected her virtue was tainted.

In despair at the rejection, Sita built a funeral pyre and stepped into the roaring flames.

The flames, however, did not harm her flesh or burn her clothes, proving her purity.

At this sign of his wife’s virtue, Rama embraced her, and the couple returned to rule their kingdom for a thousand years.
