From ancient times Devghat has been a sacred place with reference to religious beliefs and practices as well as a place of for meditation and spirituality. The place is also synonymous with Shaligram, Ashrams, and as a learning center of the Vedas (Ved Gurukuls). It is for this reason that Devghat is also known for religious tourism.

Devghat is located 5 km north around the middle section of Nepal’s east-west highway. The geographical location is such that this happens to be the meeting point of Chitwan, Tanahu and Nawalpur districts. Spread over a joint ownership of the three districts at 5,434 ha, Devghat is a key religious tourism destination for pilgrims. There is a huge religious fair held annually around February call “Maghe Sakranti”.
