रामरावणयोर्युद्धम् रामरावणयोरिव

गगनम् गगनाकारम् सागरः सागरोपमः।
रामरावणयोर्युद्धम् रामरावणयोरिव॥
gaganam gaganākāram sāgaraḥ sāgaropamaḥ |
rāmarāvaṇayoryuddham rāmarāvaṇayoriva ||

The sky compares only with itself and so does the ocean;
In the same way, the war between Rama and Ravana compares only with itself!

(Anyone knows what is the exact shloka number in yuddha kaandam?)

  1. I believe this is not in ramayana but rather a couplet composed by Kalidasa. When asked for a metaphor or simile to describe the Rama-Ravana yuddha, Kalidasa responded thus.

  2. Very intersting to see the site.
    This particular solka i hav read in Kuvalayanada (or some alankaara text)
    To Explain the सागरोपमा अलंकार it is given.But not in RAmAyaNa.
