Situated along the Naya Ghat of Ayodhya, the Treta Ke Thakur Temple houses numerous idols including that of Lord Ram, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman, Bharat and Sugreev. These statues are said to have been sculpted out of a single black sandstone.
Treta Ke Thakur is believed to have been constructed 300 years into the past, by Kullu, the king of the time. It is said that this structure stands on the very same ground of the famous Ashwamedha Yagna performed by Lord Rama. The temple was further revamped in the 1700s by the Maratha queen of the time, Ahilyabai Holkar.
It is open to the public only once a year on a day marked as the Ekadashi. This day is observed on the Shukla Paksha's eleventh day during the month of Karthika according to the Hindu calendar. Colourful celebrations alongside preserved traditional customs are carried out on this day.
