Story Behind the Couple Statue:

The figure represents a couple who were in love, popularly known as Jhitku Mitki in the region. According to local stories:

'Mitki' was the sister of seven brothers of a 'Gond' family that lived in a village in Central India . As the brothers had huge affection for her only sister, they did not want to let her settle in spouse’s home and instead wanted her to stay in their home after marriage. Hence, her brother 'Lamsena' brought a youth 'Jhitku' to home for marrying 'Mitki'.

‘Jhitku’ earned his living by playing a musical instrument on the streets of the village. Hence, the statues hold musical instruments. Both fell in love but one day her brothers dreamt that the Goddess was demanding sacrifice. On not finding anyone, they sacrificed 'Jhitku'. 'Mitki' could not bear the separation and took her life. The Tribals believe that their 'mannats’ (desires)' get fulfilled by worshipping 'Jhitku Mitki'.
