History of Ramaram temple
According to the temple priest Durga Prasad Thakur, the Mother Goddess used to worship here on the hill.
The priest used to come here every day and while going back he used to go to Rajbada with the urn, but one day the priest forgot to take the urn and when he returned, it was already night and Mother Goddess was offering food to all the gods. Seeing the priest back, the goddess got angry and threw the urn. After that the urn rolled back and a temple was built where it stopped.
Here Lord Shri Ram worshiped Bhu Devi

Here Lord Shri Ram along with Mother Sita worshiped Bhoodevi. Right after that he reached Injram. Therefore, here along with the local gods and goddesses, Lord Shri Ram is also worshipped.
