Sut Haran is a famous spring situated a little away from Tosamaidan in the district of Budgam. Nestled amidst a dense forest, this spring is situated in proximity to the Line of Actual Control, the effective border between India and People’s Republic of China. According to Hindu mythology, Ram, the incarnation of the Hindu god of preservation, Vishnu, lived in these very forests with his wife Sita and brother Lakshan during his period of exile.
It is also believed that Sita bathed in this spring during her stay there which is why the spring was originally known as Sita Haran. The name of the spring was later changed to Sut Haran. A rock placed near the waterbody is believed to have been used by Sita to sit upon. The water of this spring is said to be extremely sweet to taste.
