Chitrakuta’s spiritual legacy stretches back to legendary ages: It was in these deep forests that Rama, Sita and his brother Lakshmana spent eleven and half years of their fourteen years of exile; the great sage Atri, Sati Anusuya, Dattatreya, Maharshi Markandeya, Sarbhanga, Sutikshna and various other sages, seers, devotees and thinkers meditated; and here the principal trinity of the Hindu pantheon, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, took their incarnations.     
 
When Bharata was asked by his ministers to take his seat upon the throne of Ayodhya, he refused and came to Chitrakuta to meet Rama. Here at place called Bharat Milap, Bharata met Rama and requested him to return to Ayodhya and rule; but Rama would not. Then Bharata returned back to Ayodhya and installed the sandals on the throne, and, living in retirement, carried on the government as their minister. Places of tourist importance are Ramghat, Kadamgiri, Bharat Milap, Janaki Kund and Sati Anusuya ashrama, Sphatic Shila, Gupt-Godavari, Hanuman Dhara and Bharat Koop.
