The Ramdarbar is the name given to the group of figures who appear in the Ramayana, one of the most popular stories in the Hindu tradition. The figures are Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanuman.

The Ramayana, one of the most popular stories in the Hindu tradition, tells of Rama's exploits. As a young prince he performs heroic acts and in due course wins Sita as his wife after succeeding in bending a great war bow. Cheated of his rightful role as successor to his father the king, he goes off into exile. Sita and his brother Lakshmana insist in going with him. One day Sita is kidnapped by the ten-headed demon Ravana and carried off to his stronghold in the island of Lanka. Helped by Hanuman, Rama eventually defeats Ravana and his army in battle and rescues Sita. They then return to their kingdom where Rama is given his rightful place as king.
Rama is the model of reason, right action and commendable virtues. He is often depicted with a tall conical cap which symbolises his royal status.
Sita and Rama are the model wife and husband in the Hindu tradition.
Hanuman is also regarded as a god in his own right and as the son of the wind god he is able to fly and change shape at will. He is one of the few gods without a consort.
