The place was the seat of Rishi Shringi hence, the name Shringverpur. According to Valmiki Ramayan the place was ruled by Nishad (boatman) king ‘Guh’ & is said to be of Ramayana Period. Lord Ram while proceeding to the exile of fourteen years, stayed here to rest on the request of the Nishad King. During medieval period, the place was headquarter of a Pargana (district). General Cunningham found many coins here. Many mounds are located in the adjoining areas which are yet to be excavated. The excavation of these will definitely reveal many unknown facts about this area.
Shringe Rishi Samadhi & Shanta Devi Temple:
Shringi Rishi Samadhi is located on the highest mound of the area. Lord Ram visited the Ashram of the Rishi, with Laxman & Sita while proceeding to the exile of fourteen years. Anand Mai Temple or Shanta Devi Temple (wife of Rishi Shringi) is also located nearby.
Near the Shringi Rishi Samadhi (Temple) is the place called Ram Chaura. It is here, where Ram stayed overnight & accepted the invitation of Nishad king and asked the people of Ayodhya to go back. Ram, Laxman & Sita denounced their royal robes and crossed the River Ganges by boat. The place from where he started his journey to exile, a platform is constructed, called Ram Chaura and is about 750 mts away from Shringi Rishi Ashram. There are many temples in Ram Chaura. Ram, Sita & Hanuman temple, a twelve faced huge idol of Hanuman is worth mentioning.
