Understanding The Sanatan Culture

The first part of the Chhattisgarh Ram Van Gaman Tourism Circuit is the Sitamarhi- Harchowka. Sitamarhi- Harchowka is in Bharatpur Tehsil’s Janakpur. It is believed that Lord Rama entered Chhattisgarh from Koriya district and visited Sitamarhi- Harchowka first.

The Chhattisgarh government’s ambitious plan will give the next generation and foreign visitors the chance to learn about the Sanatan culture of the state. 

Only 27 kilometres separate Raipur from Chandkhuri in Arang, which is thought to be the birthplace of Mata Kaushalya and the maternal grandmother of Lord Rama. 

Rama entered Dandakaranya while in exile when he arrived at Dakshin Kosal, now known as Bharatpur in the Koriya district, crossed the Mawai River, and travelled from Ayodhya to Prayagraj. Then, at Sitamarhi-Harchuka, a natural cave shrine constructed on the banks of the River Mavai, he took a nap. (India TV News)
