Dear Soul Mates,

We finished our lunch and Sitamarhi visit at round 1.00 PM  and headed for Prayagraj Triveni Sangam in Allahabad. Today our goal was to visit some places in Triveni Sangam and some places in Allahabad and reach Chitrakoot in night. From Sita Samahit Sthal, Sitamarhi  we started towards Allahabad which was around 60 kms from Sitamarhi. In between I was inquiring about the rates which boat owners charge for going across the towards the Triveni Sangam ( confluence of rivers Ganga,Yamuna and Saraswati) . My driver told me around Rs. 1200 to Rs.1500 from the banks of Yamuna to Triveni Sangam.

Dear Soul Mates,

For people who love serenity and want to feel emotional vibrations of almighty , this place is never to be missed.

We finished our Vindhyavasini Dham at around 10 oclock and then moved towards our next destination    that was Sitamarhi in Uttar Pradesh. Before going to Sitamarhi I will tell you that there are two places named identically as Sitamarhi. One is in Bihar where Sita, the wife of Lord Rama sprang to life out of an earthern pot, when Raja Janak was ploughing the field somewhere near Sitamarhi to impress upon Lord Indra for rain. It is said that Raja Janak excavated a tank at the place where Sita emerged and after her marriage set up the stone figures of Rama, Sita and Lakshman to mark the site. This place is in Bihar near Nepal Border. 

The other place is one where Sita Maa goes underground after spending the life in forest in Valmiki Ashram after the Ramayana war in Uttar Pradesh . Here in this post I  am going to show you the place where she goes underground. It is also called as " Sita Samahit Sthal"  " "Sitamani" "Sitamadhi" site where she was enveloped with Goddess Bhagwati Prithvi Devi.

Here below in the Map I have shown you the detailed map how to go about from Vindhyachal, Mirzapur, Allahabad and Varanasi.

Dear Soul Mates,

After going through all the places in Varanasi I went to four more destinations in which one was the famous and one of the Greatest Shaktipeeths called Vindhyavasini in Vindhyachal near Mirzapur , Uttar Pradesh. In our plan we had to go to Vindhyachal, Sitamarhi (Sita Samahit Sthal), Prayag ( Allahabad ) and Chitrakoot. For this we decided to book a car from Varanasi itself. Vindhyachal and Sitamarhi are the places which are located between Allahabad and Varanasi. From Grand Trunk Road which connects  Varanasi and Allahabad one has to go towards Ganga river side for reaching those places. First we started our journey on Grand trunk road towards Vindhyachal early at 5.00 AM. After around 2 hours we crossed Ganga at Mirzapur and proceeded towards Vindhyachal which was eight kms away from Mirzapur

Dear Soul Mates,

On my final day of Kashi Yatra I went to Sarnath in the morning.Sarnath is the place where great religion Buddhism took its course. Gautam  Buddha delivered his first sermon 'Wheel of the Dharma' here in Saranth at deer park to his five companions after attaining Nirvana. Buddhists look India as land of Buddha and visit India as  a sight of pilgrimage. Sarnath is one of the foremost and most important places in the pilgrimage. Not only buddhism but people from all religions and sects visit Sarnath on their visit to Varanasi .

Dear Soul Mates,

On my 5 days of Kashi Yatra one day I went to South Varanasi with my family and visited all the temples. Apart from temples there is a city on the south eastern side of Varanasi on the opposite bank of Ganges called Ramnagar. Ramnagar is 14 kms from Varanasi and 2 kms from BHU.  And in Ramnagar there is a great fort called Ramnagar fort with Vyasa Temple and  Museum inside it. One has to cross the temporary bridge made of wood and drums to visit the fort and the city. There is also a concrete bridge little more on the southern side which takes longer and circular path to reach the fort.
