Nestled approximately 26 kilometers away from Simdega district headquarters, Ramrekha Dham stands as a sacred abode steeped in spirituality and history. Legend has it that during their fourteen years of exile, Lord Rama, along with Sita and Lakshmana, traversed this very path and resided here for a while. This revered site boasts of ancient structures like the Agnikund, Charan Panduka, Sita Chulha, and Gupta Ganga, bearing testament to Rama’s sojourn during his exile.
Ramrekha Dham, ensconced within a cave, is adorned with temples dedicated to Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, Hanuman, and Lord Shiva. Every year, on the auspicious occasion of Kartik Purnima, devotees from various states and communities gather here for a vibrant fair, fervently praying to the divine.
The significance of Ramrekha Dham extends beyond religious boundaries. People from diverse backgrounds visit this spiritual site, especially during the Kartik Purnima fair, where devotees not only seek spiritual solace but also express their gratitude for a blissful life.
Apart from Ramrekha Dham, the neighboring region of Ichagarh, situated approximately 70 kilometers northwest of Jamshedpur, holds profound historical importance. It is believed that Lord Rama spent his days during the exile in this Ichagarh area. Chitaran, Adardih, and Chimtiya, on the border of Ichagarh, bear marks of Sita’s footsteps, while in Paragama region of Kukdu in Palamu district, a stream was created by Lord Rama’s arrow, still fascinating the curious minds.
The story goes that once when Mother Sita was searching for water to bathe, unable to find any, she requested Lord Rama for help. Rama, with his divine arrow, created a stream named ‘Sita Nala’, where Sita performed her ablutions. The water from this stream is said to never dry up, even during scorching summers. Nearby grew a majestic Arjuna tree, where Sita dried her hair. The marks of her hair are still visible on the tree bark. Several years ago, the tree fell, but people have preserved its branch, considering it a sacred relic.
Ramrekha Dham and its surrounding areas are not just a testament to a bygone era but also a living reminder of the rich tapestry of mythology and heritage that continues to captivate the hearts of devotees and history enthusiasts alike.
