Chitrakoot Overview

Chitrakoot, referred to as the Hill of Many Wonders, is a district located in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The district covers a distance of 62 km from East to West and 57.5 km from North to South.

The district is bordered by Kaushambi in the North, Satna and Rewa of Madhya Pradesh in the South, Prayagraj of Allahabad in the East and Banda in the West. Chitrakoot is located in the Northern Vindhya Range, which consists of Madfa Pahar, Chitrakoot Parvat Mala and Balmiki Pahar. The district is located on the bank of the Mandakini River, which is also known as the Paishwani River.

Chitrakoot is believed to be the dwelling place of Lord Rama, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshman, during their exile of eleven and a half years. It is also believed that all the gods and goddesses came to Chitrakoot when Lord Rama performed the ‘shraddha’ ceremony of his father. The gods and goddesses were so impressed by the beauty of the place that they were unwilling to depart.

When Vashishtha, the family priest, sensed that all the Holy Spirits desired to stay back, he forgot to utter the Visarjan Mantra. Therefore, it is believed that the gods made this place their permanent dwelling. Goswami Tulsidas, the Hindi saint poet spent a major part of his life worshipping the deity. It was here where he got the darshan of Lord Rama at the plea of Hanumanji.

Prayagraj, which is now known as Allahabad, is the most important of all teerths; but Chitrakoot has earned a much higher strata. As per Hindu belief, Chitrakoot did not go to Prayagraj, similar as other teerths. Prayagraj was told that Chitrakoot has a much higher status and Prayagraj should go to Chitrakoot and not the other way round. It is believed that Prayagraj comes every year to wash off his sins by bathing in the river Paishwani.

Residents here mainly speak in Hindi and Bundeli. Being a holy destination, only vegetarian dishes are available. This place is known for dum bhindi, gobi musallam, sultani dal and pakode. Petha, peda, gazak and rewri are some of the sweet specialities of this place.

Several fairs and festivals are organised in this place, such as Ramayana Mela, Ramnavami, Dipawali, Navaratri, Vijayadashami, Shrawan Jhoola Mela and Amavasya Fair. Owing to so many things happening throughout the year, tourists throng this destination year-round. However, with respect to weather, the best time to plan a trip to Chitrakoot is from July to March.

There is so much to see in Chitrakoot.
