In the latter years, the goddess had also defeated Shumbha and Nishumbha. Apart from its Mythological relevance, Vindhyachal is known for its beautiful natural surroundings.
Sitakund - one of the popular attractions at Vindhyachal. It is said that when Sri Ram, Sita and Lakshman were returning home after their exile, Sita became very thirsty at this place. Since water was not easily available, Lakshman pierced an arrow and immediately a fountain of water came out.

After climbing 48 steps to the Sita Kund the track leads to another low hillock, where the Ashtabhuja Temple is situated
