The temple is known as the spot where Bharat met Lord Rama during his exile and persuaded him to return to Ayodhya and rule the kingdom. Legends says that the meeting of the two brothers was so overwhelming that it melted the rocks and mountains of Chitrakoot. The place known as the hill of many wonders is said to have footprints of Lord Rama and his brothers imprinted on its rocks, which are even today visited and worshipped by thousands of devotees annually.

In the months of October and November, a fair known as the Bharat Milap Mela is organised here, and is celebrated with great gusto by the priests of the temple as well as the residents of Chitrakoot.
