Looking for a historical escape for your next trip? A place that holds immense importance in the history of India? While there is a long list of frequently visited places with strong historical ties, there are a select few that are underrated gems of our people’s struggle for independence and brotherhood. One such place is Basti, a district of historical legacy and lively neighborhoods in Uttar Pradesh. Decades back in 1857, 250 martyrs from Amorha were hanged here from peepal trees by the British government during the freedom struggle of 1857 at Chhawani.
While Basti holds a mythical past for those who crave for historic inspiration, there’s a lot more that it offers to every traveler. Ahmath Pull running over the river Kuwano is a bridge that dates back to the British rule. It connects Basti to Lucknow (190 km), Faizabad (62 km), and Ayodhya (58 km). Travelers also enjoy visiting Chando Tal, a 5km long stretch of water where you can find indigenous and migratory birds if you’re visiting at the right time. Basti is also home to many temples. The Barah temple is famous for its citations in various mythological books. At the same time, Bhadeshwar Nath temple welcomes a lot of worshippers, particularly during Shivratri as it is believed that Ravana built it for Lord Shiva.
Apart from its heroic and religious relevance, Basti also charms travelers with its sprawling markets, reminding you of the simpler times. Pakke Bazar is the central market and one of the oldest, most crowded places to visit for experiencing the local culture. To experience the vibrant and warm culture of this place, you can also plan your visit during Nav Durga Puja.
You can visit in and around the city economically via public buses- all prominent attractions are covered by these bus routes. Auto-rickshaws are another affordable option to help you commute within the city.
