This Indian state is a veritable treasure mine for anyone interested in tribal culture. It lives off the cultural majesty and the diversity of age-old customs and rites that have yet to be revealed and the wealth of information available.

The Ram Van Gaman Tourism Circuit For Chhattisgarh


The state of Chhattisgarh is a land of surprises and many possibilities. Whether it’s the exclusive handicrafts, wild rivers and quaint villages, ancestral temples and rich tribal cultures, ancient monuments and historical cities, one-of-a-kind festivals, the saga of the Royal Palace, the untamed the natural parks, or forgotten tales of dense forest in Bastar. It is a veritable melting pot with various attractions. Experiencing everything with your own eyes will be very gratifying for you.

The CM Bhupesh Baghel said that this new project would open gates for tourism in the state. Therefore, they have recognized nine sites that will develop as the tourist Destination under this project. These nine sites are around the ‘Van Gaman Path’ that Lord Ram took on his way to his 14-year exile. He has spent most of his time in exile in Chhattisgarh.

Further, the CM also added that this project would create employment opportunities.

How Ram Van Gaman Tourism Circuit Project Will Make Chhattisgarh A Popular Destination?


Chhattisgarh has long been a popular tourist destination. We are implementing Ram Van Gaman Tourism Circuit to preserve Lord Ram’s memories in the state and promote culture and tourism in the state. This project’s initial phase involves developing the 9 highlighted sites. Apart from landscaping, tourist amenities are constructed to bring the areas up to international tourism standards. Beginning in the Koriya district in North Chhattisgarh, the projects will extend to the Sukma district in South Chhattisgarh.

The initiative would not only teach the state’s youth about its illustrious history but also attract visitors from all over the globe.

Will Bastar and Surguja Change The Image of Chhattisgarh?


CM Bhupesh Baghel added that Bastar is the 21st century new normal. Tourists must learn that the state is much more than Naxalism. Chhattisgarh has huge tourist potential. The administration has been working hard to promote unknown sites and territories like Surguja. They have linked Bastar via air. Because visitors, celebrities, and participants from all over the globe can now easily access Bastar, the government is preparing to host cultural events in Bastar.

To know what the Bastar holds, we are also pushing Bastar coffee, which has a distinct taste, and Jashpur tea. There are plans to grow coffee in more places in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, which includes seven districts that have been affected by Maoists. The project will help tourism and create jobs.

Destinations Covered in Ram Van Gaman Tourism Circuit Project

Shri Ram’s Janambhoomi is Ayodhya, his Karmbhoomi in Chhattisgarh. This initiative conserves and develops places associated with Lord Rama’s exile from the Korea district in North Chhattisgarh to the Sukma district in South Chhattisgarh.

We found 75 spots where Ram, Laxman, and Sita lived in the state’s woods. We propose to build 9 sites in the first phase. Sitamarhi Harchauka (Korea), Ramgarh (Sarguja), Shivrinarayan (Janjgir-Champa), Turturiya (Balodabazar), Chandkuri (Raipur), Rajim (Gariaband), Sihawa Saptarishi Ashram (Dhamtari), Jagdalpur (Bastar), and Ramaram (Sukma).

They don’t know the fifth Dham is in the country’s middle. The fifth Dham in India is Shivrinarayan, where people go to pray. Shivrinarayan is the intersection of the Shivnath, Mahanadi and Jonk rivers.  Moreover, it is where Mata Shabri fed Lord Rama sweet berries while he was on the run from the palace.
