History
Gopachal HillChitrakoot is known as the 'hill of many wonders'. And this place lies peacefully in the northern spurs of the Vindhyas, a place of serene forest glades and quiet rivers, and where calm streams pass through. Chitrakoot's spiritual legacy stretches back to the legendary ages. It was in these deep forests that Rama and Sita spent eleven of their fourteen years of exile; this is also the place where the great sage Atri and Sati Anusuya meditated; and where the principal trinity of the Hindu pantheon, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, took their incarnations.

Sufferers and seekers, poets and visionaries, princes and noblemen have, through the ages, sought and found solace in Chitrakoot, drawn inspiration from its natural beauty and gained spiritual strength from its composed temples. At all times Ramghat witnesses a deep and persistent faith, which finds expression in the rituals, which respect the sanctity of Chitrakoot.
