Treta Ke Thakur is an ancient temple located on the banks of the Sarayu river and is believed to house idols of Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman, Bharat, and Sugreev, all carved out of a single black sandstone.
This temple has a fascinating history that dates back to the Treta era, hence the name Treta Ke Thakur. According to legend, it’s built on the very same ground where Lord Rama performed the Ashwamedha Yagna. The temple was constructed 300 years ago by the king of Kullu and later renovated by the Maratha queen, Ahilyabai Holkar in the 1700s.
Now, here’s the catch – Treta Ke Thakur is open to the public only once a year on the eleventh day of the holy month of Kartik, which falls in November. But hey, trust us, it’s totally worth the wait. The temple is open for 24 hours on this day, and colorful celebrations and traditional rituals are carried out. It’s a festive atmosphere that will surely leave you spellbound.
So, if you’re looking for a unique and spiritual experience, make sure to visit Treta Ke Thakur Temple. It’s a major pilgrimage site in Ayodhya and attracts a large number of devotees and tourists.
