Ramayana Bala Kanda 1-13
33 tryaho 'śvamedhaḥ saṃkhyātaḥ kalpasūtreṇa brāhmaṇaiḥ
catuṣṭomam ahas tasya prathamaṃ parikalpitam
34 ukthyaṃ dvitīyaṃ saṃkhyātam atirātraṃ tathottaram
kāritās tatra bahavo vihitāḥ śāstradarśanāt
35 jyotiṣṭomāyuṣī caiva atirātrau ca nirmitau
abhijid viśvajic caiva aptoryāmo mahākratuḥ
In Ramayana Valmiki has said Ashwamedha Yajna was done with others
like Chatushtoma, Ukthya, Atiratra, Jyotishtoma, Aptoryama, Abhijit
What is the total duration of Ashwamedha? How many days?
