Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Ahmath Pull, Basti


Ahmath Pull or Ahmath Bridge is located over the river Kuwano in the outer area of the city of Basti. It was built by the British government and connects Basti with major cities of the state such as Ayodhya, Faizabad and Lucknow.

The bridge derives its name from a math or a monastery which is located on the bank of the river Kuwano as one climbs down the bridge. There is also a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva close to it.

The area is a kind of haven of peace from the noisy traffic and hassles of the crowded city. Scores of people turn up to soothe their nerves in its peaceful surroundings in the vicinity of two spiritual places on the bank of a river. It presents a good sight in the mornings and evenings with people taking walks, visiting the temple or the math and performing a variety of physical exercises and yog asans.
