“Historical temple, poorly maintained ..”

Here is how to reach ram tirth in economical way: Trip cost only Rs 24.
This ramtirth temple is around 12km from amritsar railway station. Just outside railway station, there are small mini bus which goes upto the cross road of the temple. It cost me just Rs 12 (one way) from the cross road, you need to walk around 700 meters straight road to the temple.

There is a History behind this temple. where lord sriram's both son luv and kush were born here also valmiki ashram was here.. But now it's very confusing to find exact birth place or ashram as many small temples in the surrounding area with a tag of 'old temple' and birth place.

Other than that you can also see a huge 80 ft high (24.5 metres) Hanuman's statue (monkey god) and there was a huge shiv ling of lord shiva. This temple area need some maintenance. or tourist going to disappointed a bit.

Not quite known and popular, Ram Tirath is considered to be birth place of Luv & kush. A huge place but sadly its quite dirty and unkept and have ppl hounding you for charity… There doesn’t seem a spiritual pleasure in it. Would not suggest other to go.

Virtually unknown till now, the Ram Tirth is soon going to be a popular tourist attraction as massive funding with infrastructure development is ongoing. It is held to be Valmiki ashram where Sita had taken refuge after Rama disowned her. It's a huge campus with multiple temples and places to look for like, birth place of Luv & Kush, their gurukul, place where they stopped & tied the Ashwamedh horse, place where Sita finally returned back to Bhoomi, huge resevoir said to have been dug by Hanuman, Pracheen Hanuman temple, etc.

A must visit for all travel enthusiasts. Easily connected by road to Amritsar; one can cover the visit in half a day's time.
