Ramgarh and Sita Bengra







Ramgarh and Sita Bengra caves are situated in Surguja district. It is believed that Lord Rama, central character of the epic Ramayana, and his wife Sita, stayed in these caves during their 14 years of exile. The locals know many stories about the caves, handed down through generations. In front of these caves, there are round rock-cut benches that have been arranged in terraces, forming the shape of a crescent. The Sita-Bengra caves are 14x5x1.8 metre in dimensions
