Rama returns to Ayodhya
(British Library: Mewar Ramayana)

From the Library site: Making use of Ravana's flying chariot, the exiles have left Lanka and flown swiftly northwards, the directional imperative now being from right to left. Reunited with Bharata and Satrughna, who have kept Rama's kingdom for him during the fourteen years of exile, they enter Ayodhya in triumph. They drive through the bazaars with their festive hangings to the palace where they are received by their mothers. Even Kaikeyi is forgiven. The monkey king Sugriva, his minister Hanuman and the other chief monkeys have assumed human form. Rama's coronation begins his auspicious reign, a truly golden age for mankind - Ram-raj , Rama's rule.
