IT'S MY RENUKOOT

It has an average elevation of 283 metres (931 feet). Renukoot lies in the southmost part of Uttar Pradesh and sits next to Shakti Nagar, Anpara and some other towns in nearby Madhya Pradesh.

Rihand Dam, which is built over Govind Ballabh Pant Sagar Lake and the Rihand River (a tributary of the Son River) is 1.5 kilometers from Renukoot and is also a trekking route for school trips from local schools. The importance of the dam can be gauged from the fact that its picture was on the last version of the Rs. 100 note of the Indian Government.
