What you'll be reading-

Nearly 18 kilometres separate from Ramghat, a well-known tourist destination in Chitrakoot, from Sati Anusuya Ashram. It is regarded as a part of the “Chitrakoot Char Dham” and is one of the most sacred locations in the area. The fact that Maharishi Atri and his wife Maha Sati Anasuya used it as their ashram is how this location got its name. Because of her dedicated, chaste, and pure character, she is also recognised as one of the mahasatis in sacred Hindu texts.

Her name has a fascinating backstory as well. This area is thought to have been dry for ten years as a result of the lack of rain. Then, after enduring severe penance, Anasuya was able to deliver the River Mandakini to Earth. Because of her ultimate sacrifice and extreme suffering throughout her penance, she was given the name Sati.

In fact, Goddess Sita sought her blessings throughout her exile with Lord Rama because of how devoted and loving she was to her husband and her responsibilities. Additionally, she learned lessons in humility, devotion, and every other virtue a chaste, noble, and devoted woman ought to have.

On all sides, there are hills and dense foliage that surround the ashram. This has a significant impact on giving it the famed tranquilly and peace, as well as the spiritual aura. Mahasati Anasuya, her husband Maharishi Atri, and their son Dattatreya are all honoured in a sizable temple.

In addition to statues of the three noble souls, the temple also contains images from Sati’s life that give it aesthetic value. A statue of Lord Krishna driving the chariot with Arjuna sitting behind him is also present. Women are frequently observed walking about the temple and paying respects to Maha Sati Anasuya, the purest soul ever.
