vrm.5.58 Amidst that Ashoka garden, I saw a large Shimshupa garden.
vrm.5.59 "In the midst of Ashoka garden of the evil minded Ravana and underneath a Shimshupa tree, the virtuous Seetha was seen staying dejected, encircled as she was with female Rakshasas, agonized with grief and anguish, lusterless like a digit of the moon encircled by a line of clouds and disregarding that Ravana who is arrogant of his strength.

vrm.6.34 Sarama, who knew how to investigate could hear the wicked Ravanas resolve and soon returned to Ashoka grove.
vrm.6.34 Sarama, who entered the Ashoka grove, saw Seetha who looked like Lakshmi the goddess of prosperity bereft of the lotus and waiting for her only.
vrm.6.39 Thick with Champaka, Ashoka, Vakula Sala and palmyra trees, covered with groves of Tamala and Panasa trees, surrounded with rows of Nagakesara trees, Lanka looked splended on all sides like the city of Amaravati reigned by Indra with green lawns and variegated avenues and with beautiful trees of various kinds like Hintala, Arjuna, Nipa Saptaparna in full flowering, Tilaka, Karnikara and Patal whose crests were laden with flowers and which were intertwined with climbers laden with multi coloured flowers and red tender leaves.
vrm.6.47 Thereafter, the female Rakshasas brought the aerial car, Pushpaka as per the instructions of Ravana and carried it nearer to Seetha who was staying in Ashoka grove.
vrm.6.48 Thereafter, Seetha along with Trijata who descended from Pushpaka the aerial car, were caused by the female Rakshasas, to enter the Ashoka grove again.
vrm.6.48 Entering that Ashoka grove, planted with a multitude of trees, sporting ground of Ravana and recalling the two princes who she had just seen, Seetha gave way to extreme grief.
vrm.6.56 That mighty Hanuman of great strength with a large body shone like a fire without smoke and resembled a blooming Ashoka tree.
vrm.6.72 Alas! How great is Ramas strength! How great is the power of his arrow! Some regiments of the army have to protect this City and even Ashoka garden where Seetha is being guarded, vigilantly on all sides.
vrm.6.92 While those Rakshasas were thus talking, Ravana who was excited with fury, rushed towards Seetha, who was present in the Ashoka grove.
vrm.6.102 With all his limbs torn down by arrows and with blood flowing from his limbs, that Ravana in the midst of Rakshasas, shone like a blooming Ashoka tree in the midst of a multitude of trees.
vrm.6.113 That Hanuma, the Vanara, known to Seetha, having entered the City of Lanka, seeking permission from Vibhishana, getting approval from him and entering Ashoka grove as per the prevailing regulation, saw at the foot of a tree, Seetha, who was bereft of freshness, looking joylessly like a frightened cow and surrounded with female Rakshasas.
vrm.6.113 These cruel female Rakshasas of terrific form and behavior, with still more cruel eyes, having ugly faces, were heard by me here speaking again and again harsh words to you, who are so devoted to your husband, at Ravanas command, when you were suffering hardships in the Ashoka grove, O divine lady!
vrm.6.126 "Caring a straw for that Ravana and his talk, Seetha, later, actually remained in Ashoka grove.
vrm.6.126 "There, I saw Seetha, living alone in a grove of Ashoka trees, clad in a soiled silk saree, looking cheerless, but unflinching in her vow.
