One of the bustling ghats of Chitrakoot, Ram Ghat is located on the banks of River Mandakini, and is mostly thronged with devotees. In the morning, devotees come to perform the surya namaskar (praying to the Sun god), and take a dip in the river. However, the major attraction is an evening aarti that takes place every day  priests dressed in traditional saffron cloth pray to the lord and chant shlokas.


Ram Ghat is believed to be the place where Lord Rama, Goddess Sita and Lord Lakshmana interacted with saint Goswami Tulsidas. The Tulsi Chabutra is a platform near the ghat that is said to be where Tulsidas wrote the Ramcharitmanas, an epic poem written in the awadhi language, and today considered as one of the greatest works of Hindi literature.


Another legend associated with Raj Ghat says that the sacred river of Sarayu has its underground source at this point. It emerges from here and again disappears.
