New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday greeted the people of the country on the occasion of Ram Navami.

"Happy Ram Navami to the countrymen. May everyone get happiness, peace and prosperity in life by the grace of Lord Shriram. Jai Shri Ram," the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter in Hindi.

Rama Navami is celebrated to mark the birthday of Lord Rama. The festival celebrates the descent of Lord Vishnu as the Rama, through his birth to King Dasharatha and Queen Kausalya in Ayodhya.

On the occasion of Ram Navami, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also virtually address the 14th Foundation Day celebration at Umiya Mata Temple at Gathila, Junagadh in Gujarat later in the day.

The inauguration of the temple was also done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2008 when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

"Based on suggestions given by the Prime Minister in 2008, temple trust has expanded its scope into various social and health related activities as well such as free cataract operations and free ayurvedic medicines for economically weaker patients etc.," the PMO said in a statement. Umiya Maa is considered as the Clan-deity or Kuldevi of the Kadava Patidars.
