Bharat Milap Temple is known to everybody who has been to Kamadgiri and walked around the hill there. It is one of Chitrakoot’s most revered locations and holds a particular place in the hearts of its followers. This sacred monument, like others in the neighbourhood, was the scene of a significant Ramayana event.
Why it is called the Bharat Milap Temple is a crucial topic in this context. Well, it is thought that Lord Bharat met Lord Rama here and convinced him to go back to Ayodhya and claim the throne that was rightfully his. The heat from the emotions sparked by this holy encounter is supposed to have melted the neighbouring rocks and other objects. Not only that but on this particular day, even the mountains and rocks wept.
The footsteps of all three brothers may still be seen on the temple’s rocks today if you visit the Bharat Milap Temple. If you gaze upon it long enough, you will become overwhelmed by a range of feelings. It is a profoundly affecting sight. Another temple dedicated to Mandavi, the wife of Lord Bharata, is situated close by this one. Every year, a drama that recreates the meeting of the two brothers is performed at the temple on a full moon day in the month of Kartik (October to November).
