During the rainy season, the lush green mountains all around and the Gomati river flowing through them look very beautiful. It seems as if we have come to heaven.

When seen from both sides of the swing, the Ganesh temple is visible on one side in the middle of the swing and the ucenotaph of the late Mahant of Rokadiya Hanuman temple is visible on the other side.

Apart from Laxman Jhula, there is also a walking path over the anicut to reach the other side of the river. This road is called Rampul.

After crossing the river from Rampul, going to the other side, the statues of the saints along with their footprints are installed in front.

Ramdarbar temple is a little ahead in front of Rampul. In Ram Darbar, Lord Ram and Mother Sita are sitting on the throne, Lakshmanji is standing on one side of them and Bharatji is standing on the other side. Hanumanji and Shatrughan ji are sitting below.

Shri Gomti Rameshwar Mahadev Temple is built in front of Ramdarbar temple i.e. next to Anicut. An ancient four-faced Shivalinga is installed in the temple.

There is dense greenery around the temple. When the water of the anicut overflows it flows in front of the temple in the form of river Gomti.
