Hanuman Dhara, Chitrakoot – Waterfall Source Unknown
Atheists call it miracle, Bhakts call it Blessing of Bhagwan Ram
This is about 4 Km. to the east of Ramghat at the beginning of the Vindhyas. A stream of cool and clear water originating inside the mountain falls on the idol of Hanuman Ji and loses itself in a kund below. It is a popular belief that Hanuman Ji came here to cool down the heat after burning Lanka.
In Chitrakoot’s dense forest, there’s a place known as Hanuman Dhara. Zee news team had to climb nearly 650 steps to reach this place. As per their personal account.
“What we saw here was a very old, ancient-looking statue of Hanuman and from its right, water was flowing out of the mountain. However, a pipe has now been attached to this opening in the rocky mountain to control the flowing water.

It is believed that even after reducing Ravan’s Lanka to ashes, the fire inside an angry Hanuman remained intact. After the war ended, Hanuman requested Ram to help douse the fire inside his body. It is then that Ram shot an arrow and a fountain sprung from the mountain. Since then this place has come to be known as Hanuman Dhara.
This flowing water disappears after falling on Hanuman’s statue from the pipe. This gave birth to many questions inside the minds of our team members. Zee news team tried to find the source of the water but couldn’t find any.
