Sita, the wife of Lord Ram, was left by Lakshman here to serve the period of her banishment. He also shot an arrow from where a stream of clear water sprouted for Sita. The stream still exists and is called Lakshman Babhuka. It is believed that clean and fresh waters of these sacred kunds (tanks) have curative powers. The devotees take a holy dip in them to purify their body and soul before paying homages to the deities. The Suraj Kund (is named after the Sun God ) is surrounded by verandahs on all sides and people who find themselves unable to go to the River Ganges, immerse the ashes of their dead in this kund.

There is a Valmiki Ashram nearby, which is mentioned in Ramayana as a place, where the twin sons of Ram and Sita, (named as Luv and Kush) were born. It is a simple structure of one horizontal stone resting on two vertical stones.

The fair is not only for the pilgrims but also for the cattle breeders and traders who come here to trade from Aklera, Bhilwara, Bundi, Jhalawar, Kota and Nagaur.
