Bela Pratapgarh is the district headquarters of Pratapgarh. The place gets its name from the Bela Bhawani temple located here on the banks of the Sai River. The story goes that Lord Rama crossed the river at dawn but first stopped to pay his respects to the goddess. Much later, the Bela Bhawani temple was built at the place where he had worshipped.
The temple is about 3 kms away from Bela Pratapgarh railway station on Sultanpur road. From the station, you can take a rickshaw to reach the temple. It attracts visitors throughout the year; however, there is a huge rush during the navratra period.
