Kastaharni Ghat has its name from the history in ancient India. In the sixth century BC, a Hindu sage, named Mudgal Muni, appeared in the city and established two shrines, one at a rock at Kashtaharini Ghat. In the 26th Chapter of Adi Kanda of the Ramayana
, it is mentioned that both Lord Rama
and his brother Lakshmana
on their way back from the encounter with Taraka, the demoness, took rest at the spot. The relaxation they had, gave rise to the name of Kashtaharini Ghat.
From that time onwards, this Kastaharni Ghat serves a removal of Distress. The water of this ghat is blessed as believed by the locales. It is believed that on the return of Lord Rama from Mithila
, he married Sita
. After marrying, Lord Sri Rama took a dip in this water to relieve them from fatigue. The people of this place and the adjacent states of Bihar attract the scenic beauty of Kastaharni Ghat.
