Vishwamitra tells Ram and Lakshman about King Janak's decision of getting Sita married to the man who lifts the Shiv Dhanush. On the way to Mithila, Vishwamitra stops at an abandoned hermitage and tells Ram and Lakshman about Ahalya. She was turned into a stone by her husband, Gautama. Ram touches Ahalya with his feet and liberates her from the curse. Later, Vishwamitra, Ram, and Lakshman reach Mithila. Sita and Ram gaze at each other in the garden.
