Dhopap, held in great reverence, is in Sultanpur District
of Uttar Pradesh
. It was at this place that Lord Ram
had taken a dip in the river on the advice of Maharshi Vashishth. Peoples believe that one who visits the place on the day of Dussehra
, can wash his sins in the Gomti River. There is a grand temple frequented by large crowds of worshippers.
The tract of the river Gomti around Dhopap (pargana Chanda, tehsil
) is described as Dhutpap in Vishnu Puran.
