Dowson's Classical Dictionary
of Hindu Mythology] `Bright-peak.'
The seat of Valmiki's hermitage, in which Rama and Sita both found refuge at
different times. It is the modern Chitrakote, on the river Pisuni, about fifty
miles southeast of Bands in Bundelkhand. It is a very holy place, and abounds
with temples and shrines, to which thousands annually resort. "The whole neighbourhood
is Rama's country. Every headland has some legend, every cavern is connected
with his name." - Cust in "Calcutta Review."
