Śṛṅgaverapura (शृङ्गवेरपुर) or Siṅgaraura is the name of a city mentioned in the Rāmacaritamānasa chapter two (Ayodhya-kāṇḍa).—Accordingly, “when Bharata beheld the town of Śṛṅgaverapura, he was overpowered with emotion. Leaning on the Niṣāda chief it appeared as if meekness and love had taken a living form. In this way Bharata with all his army went and saw the stream of the Gaṅgā, which purifies the whole world. He made obeisance to the ghat where Śrī Rāma had bathed and said His prayers; and he was enraptured as if he had met Śrī Rāma Himself”.

The site of the ancient Śṛṅgaverapura is marked by a village bearing the same name under the modernized form ‘Singraur’ 22 miles to the north-west of Allahabad. The Gaṅgā has changed its course and only a small branch now flows through the old channel.
