Ramnagar ki Ram Leela in Varanasi is the oldest in the world! Details here – Times of India

What makes the Ramnagar ki Ram Leela special? Well, the reason is, this festival is being practised and performed in the city from around 200 years, which makes it the oldest Ram Leela performance in the whole world. During this time the whole town gets fictional names such as Ayodhya, Ashoka Vatika and Lanka, to name a few.

Another interesting thing about the performance is that the artists do not use any kind of sound technologies such as microphones or loudspeakers but they use their own voice to perform scenes of the Ram Leela. The performance is done in natural lighting as the actors like being old-school. The Maharaja of Banaras chooses actors (below 18 years) on the basis of the quality of their voice and acting skills.Exclusives
