Shrutkirti was a character in the ancient Hindu epic, Ramayana. She was the youngest sister of Sita, the wife of Lord Rama, and the daughter of King Janaka of Mithila and his wife Queen Sunaina. Shrutkirti was married to Lord Rama’s younger brother, Shatrughna.
In the Ramayana, Shrutkirti played a minor role, and her character was not as prominent as her sisters, Sita, Urmila, and Mandavi. However, she is still considered a significant character in the epic and is revered for her devotion to her husband and her unwavering support for her brother-in-law, Lord Rama.
According to some versions of the Ramayana, Shrutkirti accompanied Sita when she was banished to the forest by Lord Rama, but in most versions, she stayed back in Ayodhya with her husband and her in-laws. Despite her limited role, Shrutkirti is still regarded as a symbol of loyalty, duty, and devotion in Hindu mythology.
