Sita Kund, Vindhyachal

Must Visit

Sita Kund or spring is situated on a small hillock close to Vidya Kund and Mani Parvat in Munger in Vindhyachal. Its origin dates back to the period of Ramayana when Ram, Sita and Laksman were returning after their victory in Lanka. Sita felt thirsty and since there was no water nearby, Lakshman shot an arrow into the earth, and a stream of water gushed out of the spot.

Sita Kund is a perennial spring. It is an important pilgrim destination both for the devout locals and the tourists because of its association with Sita.

Situated against the backdrop of majestic hills, the kund is regarded as a sacred spot by the devotees who come here to collect the holy water. You have to climb a steep flight of 48 steps to reach the spring. Three other temples dedicated to Hanuman, Ram Janki and Durga Devi are located on a hill close by. Devotees throng to the temple in large numbers during the celebrations of Chaurasi Parikarma, Shravan and Ramnavmi festivals.
