MapmyIndia Mappls launches The Ramayan Maps for the first time in India
MapmyIndia Mappls, a digital maps and deep-tech company, is releasing a series of physical, printed map art works, The Ramayan Maps, as part of an initiative to help people connect better with India’s heritage and culture through the lens of maps. This physical printed map art works on canvas (offered in varying sizes – with the choice of Hindi & English language) are meant to evoke emotion and understanding of holiest of the Hindu epics, the Ramayan, by that tracing and showcasing the journey of the Maryada Purshottama Shri Ram – right from his birth to the establishment of the Ram Rajya – on a rarely seen map of India from approx. 5000 BCE.
The initiative is to help all feel a closer connection with India’s past heritage and culture, and see the important events of the Ramayan juxtaposed on the locations across the present-day Indian sub-continent, so that all understand the cultural significance of various places and locations.

“This initiative is very close to my heart. It is like a state of self-actualisation where my life’s work meets my spiritual being. Prabhu Shri Ram is the very soul of India, and his journey is the journey of India into an age of peace, prosperity and enlightenment. India today is often regarded as the global nerve centre of Spirituality and Salvation; what can better symbolise her rise to becoming the coveted ‘Golden Sparrow’ of the world again than the journey of Prabhu Shri Ram,” says Rakesh Verma, Co-Founder, Chairman & Managing Director of the company.
“Ramayan Maps are extensively researched and culturally nuanced. They bring forth the message and significance of Shri Ram to the audience, young and old, in a simple intelligible format, highlighting the greatness of our ancient civilisation. This attempt is also a continuation of our efforts to familiarise all Indians with their rich cultural heritage through the lens of maps and location technologies, which we initiated with our Pray App which is bringing joy and solace to millions of Indians every day. Our company’s flagship Mappls app lets all users search for and navigate to all places across India, including cultural, historical, religious and spiritual significance, establishing MapmyIndia Mappls as a truly local, swadeshi, indigenous, Indian company serving the needs of all Indians in the best way,” he adds.
MapmyIndia Ramayan Maps are being offered in Hindi and English languages; consumers can choose from aesthetically designed acrylic framed maps (different size options available) or frameless canvas maps. These maps can be purchased on MapmyIndia store and are also available on leading eCommerce platforms viz. Flipkart, Meesho and Snapdeal.
