Sita’s two sons are received by Rama at palace, as seen in a mural detail at the Emerald Buddha temple.

Two small green-skinned boys kneel in prayer position beside two adults on a blue rug at the base of an ornately carved palace platform. Five monkey kings kneel in a row on the tile floor at the front. Everyone is looking up to the left towards Rama, who is outside the image frame.
