According to folklore, Lord Rama crossed the river Ganges at Shringaverpur on his way to exile along with Sita and Lakshmana. Shringverpur is mentioned in the Ramayana, where it is described as the capital of the Kingdom of Nishadraj (King of Fishermen). "Sita, Ram and his brother came to Shringverpur" can be found within.
The Ramayana mentions that Rama, his brother Lakshmana and wife Sita, stayed for a night in the village before leaving for forest exile. When the boatmen refused to carry him across the Ganges, Nishadraj visited the site where Rama was engaged in resolving the issue. He offered to carry them if Rama would let them wash their feet. Rama allowed this and Nishadraj washed Rama's feet with Ganges water and drank the water to show his devotion.
Excavations at Shringverpur unearthed the temple of Shringi Rishi. The village may have taken its name from those sages. During the Mughal period, the Singraur group was formed to face the chaotic forces by the Kshatriyas, including clans of Sage Vanshi Shringa Vanshi Sengar, Ror and Gaharwar Brahmakshatriya Kshatriya.
A small temple was built on the site where Nishadraja Ram is said to have worshipped Shivling.
The village has several ruined walls and structures.
A large old hydraulic system is in the village. A cremation centre is set on the riverbank. People from across Uttar Pradesh come to Shringaverpur for cremation.
The village is on the Ganjes riverbank, 45 kilometres (28 mi) from Prayagraj.
