about giroudpuri dham

Situated by the confluence of the Mahanadi and Jonk rivers, 80 km from Bilaspur, the Giroudpuri Dham is one of Chhattisgarh’s most revered pilgrimage points. This tiny village, which has deep associations of spirituality and historical interest, is the birthplace of the founder of Chhattisgarh’s Satnami Panth, Guru Ghasidas. Born into a farmer family of the region, one day he rose up to become Guru Ghasidas, a much revered figure in Chhattisgarh. Pilgrims arrive here to venerate him at his ‘seat’, which is located next to the Jait Khamba. He is said to have done tapasya for a long time under the Auradhara tree which is still there. This sacred place is also known as tapobhumi. The Charan Kund is a sacred pond and the site of the annual Giroudpuri Mela. Another kilometre from here is located the ancient Amrit Kund, whose waters are believed to be sweet.
