The hill is said to have attained its greatest sanctity in Tretayug when Ram, Sita and Lakshman lived here, after their exile from Ayodhya. Kalidas has mentioned Chitrakoot as the heaven of the love-lorn Yaksha and he alludes to its location on the bank of the Mandakini in the neighbourhood of Panchavati.

A huge fair is also organized here on every Amavasya. There are about three dozen places of worship dedicated to various deities, situated on the low surrounding hills, on the river banks, and in the valley and plains at the foot of the hill, all of which are connected with ceremonies of pilgrimage performed at Chitrakoot. Seven of these places, namely Kottirth, Diwan Ganna, Hanuman Dhara, Sphatakshila, Sati Ansuya, Gupt-Godavari and Bharat Kup are much frequented by devout Hindus, who go through the ceremonies of bathing, meditation, and worship at each of them.
