Sitamardhi temple of Kasi


According to Indian mythology, Sitamarhi has got immense significance, because it was here that Lord Rama’s wife Maa Sitaji was abandoned, gave birth to Luv & Kush and descended into the lap of Mother Earth forever. The only existing Valmiki Ashram on the banks of the river Ganges is located here. Sitamarhi thus carries deep religious values and significance and is considered a holy ‘Teerth’ like Prayagraj & Kashi. Today, here stands a magnificent and beautiful Shree Sita Samahit Temple visited by thousands of pilgrims everyday with deep faith and reveranice.

108 feet hanumanji statue has been installed on a 20feet artificial rock making it as one of the tallest statue in India. This statue is facing Sitamarhi temple with two floors. In the ground floor Seetha devi in Bhoomadevi’s hand.  In the walls the entire Ramayana has been portrayed in pictures.  This place is situated in 10kms from  Allahabad  to Kasi
