BASISHTA

Once upon a time, Sri Ramachandra deputed his younger brother Lakshmana, to this village with a prayer to their Guru Basishta, to make it convenient to visit Ayodhya for the performance of Asvamedha Yagna by Sri Ramachandra. Lakshmana prostrated before the Guru and gave the brother’s message.

The Muni was happy that Sri Ramachandra was solemnizing Asvamedha Yagna and promised to accompany Lakshmana for the purpose. As Lakshmana was infatigue, the Rajaguru asked Lakshmana to strike a shaft deep into the ground nearby.

Lakshmana did so and as a result hot water gushed out of the ground. Lakshmana took bath in the hot spring. It is believed the same hot springs still continue. At present there are three water springs in the village. The top-most has very hot water almost at the boiling point. It is used by the inhabitants for cleaning and boiling of warm clothes, rice etc.
