Best Time to Visit : Avoid visiting in summers as the red stones become too hot for doing the parikrama
Time Required : 3-4 hours
Kamadgiri is a forested hill with the base surrounded by multiple Hindu temples on all sides and is considered to be the heart of Chitrakoot. The pilgrims perform Parikrama around this hill with the belief that all their sorrows will be ended and their wishes will come true by doing so.
The name of Kamadgiri is derived from Kamadnathji, another name of Lord Rama and it meant fulfiller of all wishes. There are several temples on the 5 kilometres path of the Parikrama, one of the most famous being Bharat Milaap temple, where Bharat met Lord Ram and convinced him to come back to his kingdom.
Some part of Kamadgiri Mountain falls in Uttar Pradesh, while some in Madhya Pradesh. Kamadgiri sees a throng of devotees during the Chaitra month (first month of the Hindu calendar) to revel in the festivities of Ram Navami and Deepavali. A grand fair is also held here every month on Amavasya (full moon day).
