Chitrakoot means the ‘Hill of many wonders’. Chitrakoot is the place where Lord Ram spend most of his time in exile ( eleven and half years) and it was most lovable place by him.The great sage Atri, Sati Anusuya, Dattatreya, Maharshi Markandeya, Sarbhanga,Sutikshna and various other sages, seers, devotees and thinkers meditated; and here the principal trinity of the Hindu pantheon, Brahma,Vishnu and Mahesh, took their incarnations. The whole place is green with vegetation, mountains all around and lot of small river springs meeting Mandakini river. Chitrakoot falls in the northern Vindhya range of mountains spread over the states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.Chitrakoot is a holy place famous both for its natural scenery and its spiritual altitude. A tourist is as much thrilled by sighting its beautiful waterfalls, playful young deer and dancing peacocks as a pilgrim is overwhelmed by taking a dip in the Payaswani/ Mandakini and by immersing himself in the dust of the Kamadgiri.
