In addition to this, the Ashrama of sage Valmiki was at the banks of the Tamsa river. When Sita was exiled by Rama, she left Ayodhya and came to the banks of Tamsa river some 15 km away from the city, where she met Valmiki. 

Sita spent all her remaining life here and her twin sons Lava and Kusha received education and trained in military skills under the tutelage of Valmiki.
