The area encompassing Veda Sangam is aesthetically pleasing. An ancient Banyan tree, whose branches and trunk bear witness to centuries of history, is situated there. It is plausible that this was the location where the esteemed Gaurishankar Mahraj sought respite during his tenure. I approached the tree and made physical contact with it. The tactile experience was reminiscent of touching the passage of numerous centuries. I experienced a sense of connection to the many individuals who have performed circumambulation on the sacred banks of Mother Narmada by remaining in close proximity to the tree.


A mere few kilometres of distance separate Veda Sangam/Markateshwar Teerth from Mandavaya Ashram. Here lies the sacred abode of Mandavaya Muni, where he once fervently practised his austerities. Once upon a time, there existed a river called Vishok, which flowed into the mighty Narmada, creating a confluence known as Vishok Sangam. This sacred site was also home to the revered Vishokeshwar Mahadev. This is the very site where Vibhandak Muni, Devyani, Indrani, Rohini, Sambharayni, Dakshayani, Lopamudra, Ratnawali, Dhruva, Tara, Ganeshwari Arundhati, Savitri, Aditi&Diti, Ratnavaliand numerous other women from the Sanatana dharma have undergone rigorous penance and achieved blessings.
