Saptarishis are seen blessing the divine couple on successful return to Ayodhya. Rishi Narad being an ardent devotee of Lord Narayan wouldn't miss the great occasion and he promptly attends the ceremony of Narayna's avatar.

Other prominent members seen are Jambhavan who is a close friend of Lord Hanuman, Vibhishanan who is a devotee of Ram inspite of being a brother of Ravana. Ministers and Other local kings and are also present for the coronation ceremony. Vanara Sena who were very instrumental in rescuing Sita Devi from Ravan are also given a special place in the ceremony. It was a great occasion as the God in the form of man (an ideal man) takes back his rightful place in the kingdom.
