  • Turturiya - Balmiki Ashram and Birthplace of Lav-Kush : This is a gorgeous location with natural landscape surrounded by hills. The Baranvapara Wild Life Santuary is also nearby. Turturiya is located on the BalbhadriNalla, close to the settlement of Bahriya. It is stated that Maharshi Valmiki's ashram was located here in Tretayuga, and that this is where Lav-Kush was born. The name of this location comes from the fact that the water flow of the Balabhadri drain travels through the rock, and then the sound of the tutur arises owing to the buzzing waves from it. As a result, it has been given the name Turturiya. Its water flow flows through a long, narrow tunnel and into an antique brick basin.A cow's mouth is formed where this water falls in the Kunda, allowing water to flow out its mouth. There are two ancient stone statues of Vishnu Ji erected on both sides of the gomukh; one is standing, while the other is sitting on the sheshnag. Ancient stone statues of two brave individuals are erected beside the pool, one showing a heroic lion carrying a sword and the other depicting another heroic person wearing an animal neck.Shivaling has been unearthed in this place, as well as other old stone columns that have been artfully dug across the area.
