Chitrakoot: The heart of India near Orchha

A part of the Bundelkhand region, Chitrakoot, ‘the hill of many wonders’, nestles peacefully in the northern spurs of the Vindhyas in the region bordering Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh which is just 250 kms from Orchha.

Chitrakoot is a place of tranquil forest glades and quiet rivers, and streams where calm and repose are all pervading. This loveliest of Nature’s gifts is also hallowed ground, blessed by the gods and sanctified by the faith of pilgrims.

For Chitrakoot’s spiritual legacy stretches back to legendary ages: it was in these deep forests that Rama and Sita spent eleven of their fourteen years of exile; here that the great sage Atri and Sati Anusuya meditated; and here where the principal trinity of the Hindu pantheon, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, took their incarnations. Most of the attractions of Chitrakoot are situated along the Mandakini like Janki Kund, Ram Ghat, Sphatic Shila, Dev Ganga, Sati Anasuya, and Hanuman Dhara.

You’ll be amazed to know that sufferers and seekers, poets and visionaries, princes and noblemen have, through the ages, sought and found solace in Chitrakoot, drawn inspiration from its sublime natural beauty, gained spiritual strength from its serene temples and in turn, become part of the hallowed legend that is Chitrakoot.

 

Nothing is more significant than the time exhausted with friends and family away from the stresses of daily life.
