about kamtanath mandir

Located at the top of the Kamadgiri hill, this temple is dedicated to Lord Kamta nath, who is the patron deity of the Chitrakoot region. As stated in the Hindu mythology - Ramayana, a number of demons resided in the nearby Dandaka forests, who created havoc and destruction amongst the local folks in Chitrakoot. The villagers approached Lord Rama for help, while he was in the area during his period of exile. Lord Rama then prayed to Lord Kamtanath for strength and was able to kill the demons and bring relief amongst the villagers. Another belief is that Lord Kamtanath is another incarnation of Lord Rama himself. The main idol of Lord Kamtanath is black in colour and is decorated with ornaments and flowers. Beside him a smaller idol of his consort, Goddess Kamadgiri is placed. It is widely believed that if one visits this temple, followed by walking a circle around the Kamadgiri hill (5.5 km), his sins will be cleansed and his wishes will be fulfilled.
