Chitrakoot – The Hill of many wonders

 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.
