Ram Tirtha sarovara
About 11km northwest of Amritsar is Ram Tirtha Savovara. It is said that Maharishi Valmiki had his ashram here, and that Sita gave birth to Rama’s twin sons (Kush and Luv) at this place. There is a large sacred tank that is said to have been dug by Hanuman. It is said that Rishi Chavan Prash cured Valmiki Rishi of leprosy by having him bathe in the pond. There is a big festival here yearly in November.
