Ram Tirath Temple is located at a distance of 11 kilometers to the West of Chogawan road in Amritsar. The Ram Tirath Temple dates back top the period of Ramayana. There is a very good ancient tank near this temple.
A number of Temples are scattered in this particular area. At the site of the temple there is a hut where Mata Sita gave birth to Luv and Kush. The Ram Tirth Temple has Maharishi Valmiki’s hermitage and a well with stairs where Mata Sita used to take her bath. The Temples exhibit scenes from Ramayana.
Even in the holy book of Hindus, The Ramayana, the place is mentioned. Sita Mata had come here after Lord Rama deserted her and got shelter in Maharishi Valmiki’s hermitage. Sage Valmiki trained the children of Lord Ram, Luv and Kush and made them proficient in all fields, be it warfare or religious / social education. Annual Fair is held in Ram Tirth in the month of November on the full moon day. The fair lasts for four days.
Making a special place in the holy scripts of ancient religions, the place was once the ashrama of saint Balmiki. The saint is believed to have scripted many of his sacred manuscripts at this place. A hut of Rishi Balmiki is still found at Ram Tirth where he once lived. After giving birth to Luv and Kush, Devi Sita used to stay at this place for a considerable period of time. The evidence of her stay still exists in the form a well which, it is believed, was dug by Hanuman. Devotees of King Rama and Devi Sita flock to this place every year to offer their prayers to the respected deities. As the position of the Ram Tirth is facilitated by easy accessibility, the visitors conveniently reach this place of worship without any extra hassles.
Another prime attraction of Ram Tirth in Amritsar is its four day long fair which is organized from a long time. Today, a large number of tourists across India come to visit this exotic place. A beautiful manifestation of the Ramayana, the Ram Tirth in Amritsar, captivates each and every devotee who steps into this quaint abode of divine characters.
