A small boulder situated on the banks of River Mandakini, the Sphatik shila is believed to be the spot from where Lord Rama and Goddess Sita appreciated the beauty of Chitrakoot. The place is hidden amidst thick forests. It is believed that Mother Sita did her shringaar (make-up) here and this boulder still bears the imprint of Lord Rama's feet. Also, as per mythology, this is the same place where Goddess Sita was bitten by Jayant, the son of Lord Indra, disguised as a crow.


Next to the boulder is a lake that is home to several schools of fish. Given its natural surroundings and peaceful ambience, the sphatik Shila is a great place to relax and enjoy the loveliness of Chitrakoot.
