The Ram Tirath Temple is said to be the hermitage of the Saint Valmiki. It’s also fabled that he composed the tale of Ramayana in this very premises. The Ram Tirath Temple does receive a mention in the Ramayana as the birth place of Lord Ram’s children, Luv and Kush. After Ram deserted Sita, she sought refuge here, which is why many pilgrims throng the temple to take a bath in the well which is said to contain holy water. Hanuman had dug this well for Sita who used to use the water in the well for her own bath. The hut where Sita gave birth to her twins still stands and is visited by many pilgrims.

The biggest event held at the temple is a four day long fest held in November on the day of the first full moon, where on the first day of the fair, female devotees light lamps of pure ghee and set sail to them on a leave in the sacred tank.

  • Amazing architecture and the place is soothingly quiet. It is not that popular but maybe that is the reason for its charm. You get a satisfying feeling of calm and peace here. Other than that, from religious point of view, this place is extremely historic and valuable for Hindu religion. According to srories, this is the place where Mata Sita returned to Mother Earth.

  • Bhagwan Ram Tirath Sthal, dedicated to Maharishi Valmiki ji is situated 11 km west of Amritsar on Amritsar Lopoke road. As per the mythological beliefs, The temple dates back to the period of Ramayana and the place is famous for the ashram of sage Maharishi Valmiki. It is the place where the sage gave shelter to Sita, wife of Rama when she was abandoned after the Lanka Victory. The place is birthplace of Lava and Kusha, sons of Ramachandra, in ashrama of Saint Balmiki.[6] The great epic Ramayana is also said to have been written here by Maharishi Valmiki. It is also believed that the fight between Lord Ram Chandra's forces and Lav and Kush had also taken place at Ram Tirth...

  • Excellent place for spending time with your family and friends. Ecstatic to visit the historical place where Sage Valmiki wrote Ramayan, Lav and Kush trained, Sita did tapas and Ashwamedh horse was tied.

  • This place is considered as maharishi Balmiki's ashram, a place where Sita mata gave birth to her sons love and kush. There a well which is said to be used by sita mata for taking bath. The whole temple is spread over a large area and it is very clean. Major portion of Temple has been renovated but some portion remained, I think due to some disputes. Most probably different religious groups claims their control on this area. Some encroachment can also be seen. Overall this is a good and silent place, u should visit it. Two three hours are sufficient to see this temple. In Sumner the stone floor becomes very hot so don't remove your socks. Cold Drinking water is available at the entry only. No entry ticket.
