Sati Ansuya Ashram

The Sati Anusuya Ashram is set amidst dense forests near Chitrakoot and is an ode to the loyalty, obedience and dedication of Anusuya towards her husband Maharishi Atri. Mythologically, Anusuya knew of the devilish plans of the wives of the Trimurtis (Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh) against her and hence the Trimurtis blessed her by being born to her owing to her purity and righteousness. Such was the strength in her prayers that the river Mandakini had to come down to the earth. The serene environment, tranquillity and lustrous greenery on the banks of the Mandakini bear testimony to her illustrious past.
