Know about Basti City:

In the very ancient period the country around Basti was part of Kosala. The Satapatha Brahmana speaks of Kosala as one of the countries of the Vedic Aryans and the grammarian Pa?ini mentions it in one of his Sutras. It was during the rule of Rama, the eldest son of Dasharatha, that the glory of the Kosala royal dynasty reached its culmination. According to the tradition, Rama’s elder son Kush ascended the throne of Kosala while the younger son Lav became the ruler of the northern part of the kingdom with its capital as Shravasti. In the 93rd generation from Ikshvaku and 30th from Rama was Brihadbala, the last famous king of the Ikshvaku dynasty who was killed in the Great Mahabharata battle. With the decline of the Guptas in the sixth century CE, Basti also began to gradually become desolate. At this  time a new dynasty, that of the Maukharis, with its capital as Kannauj, assumed an important position on the political map of northern India and perhaps this kingdom included the present district also. In the beginning of the 9th century CE, the Gurjara–Pratihara king, Nagabhata II, overthrew the Ayodhyas who was the ruling at Kannauj, and made this city the capital of his growing empire which rose to its greatest height in the reign of the famous Mihira Bhoja I (836-885 A.D.). During the reign of Mahipal, the power of Kannauj began to decline and Awadh was divided into small chieftainships, but all of them ultimately yielded to the newly rising power of Gahadwals of Kannauj. Jayachandra (1170-1194 A.D.), the last important ruler of the dynasty was killed in the battle of Chandawar (near Etawah) fighting against the invading army of Muhammad of Ghor. Soon after his death Kannauj was occupied by the Turks. According to the legends, for centuries Basti was a wilderness and that greater part of Awadh was occupied by the Bhars. No definite evidence is available about the Bhars origin and early history. The evidence of an extensive Bhar kingdom in the district can be gleaned only from the ruins of ancient brick buildings popularly ascribed to the Bhars and found in abundance in a number of villages of this district

Name of Yajna was Putrakameshti. It is said that Dasharatha and Kaushalya have a daughter Shanta, who was Rishyashringa’s wife. As the conclusion of the Yagya drew near, Agni sprang out from the yagyakunda (sacrificial fire pit) and handed Dasharatha a pot of kheer advising him to distribute it among his queens.
