about bharat koop

About 20 km west from Chitrakoot lies the Bharat Koop, which is essentially a holy well. The legend about the well tells the story of Bharat, Lord Rama’s younger brother, who went in search of Lord Rama to bring him back from his imposed exile, to Ayodhya and his rightful throne. Bharat collected waters from all the sacred rivers, to anoint Rama before departing for their kingdom. But, after he found Rama, he failed to persuade his brother to return back to Ayodhya. Lord Rama explained that completing their father’s wishes was of utmost importance and asked Bharat to take his place on the throne till his return from the 14 year exile. Bharat refused and instead asked the lord for his paduka (footwear), which he declared would be kept on the throne till Rama himself returned to Ayodhya. On his way back, acting on Maharshi Atri’s advice, Bharat poured all the holy water into a well. Today, this well is known as Bharat Koop. Many pilgrims and devotees come here and pour the holy water of the well on their heads, believing it will cleanse them of their sins. Right by the well is a temple dedicated to Lord Rama.
