About Kalaram Temple, Nasik

The Kalaram Temple is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Rama. This is probably the only Hindu temple to carve a statue of Lord Rama with black stone. The inner sanctorum houses the idols of Goddess Sita and God Lakshman.

The temple was constructed in 1788 and has since been an important place of worship for thousands of devotees from across India. The temple is historically significant as Dr. Ambedkar held a protest outside the premises to allow Dalits to worship along with other regular Hindus.

The main entrance of the temple has a statue of Lord Hanuman, also carved from black stone. The temple premise is also home to an ancient tree which possesses the footprint impressions of Lord Dattatreya. It is almost 70 feet high and it is surrounded by an enclosure which comprises of close to 96 pillars. Like the idols housed inside, the temple is also made from black stone and took almost 12 years to complete, with the help of over 2000 workers. The ‘Kalash’ found inside the temple is made of solid gold.

  • One of the oldest temple in India. It carries lots of history about Rama and Seeta so very spiritual place. Totally build in pure rock using chisel and hammer only, so can be considered hand made. But still it's architecture is extremely fabulous, even civil engineers have to do several measurements and calculations for such a accurate and beautiful work. If you are an architect or civil engineer you must visit this place.

  • The Kala Ram Temple as the name it self says the Rama’s Idol is in Black stone. It’s and old Hindi Shrine of Sri Rama in panchavati area of NASIK city in Maharashtra. It’s believe to be built in the year 1788 by sri Sardar Rangarao Odhekar. It has also houses the statues of goddess Sita and god Lakshmana.

  • Jai SriRam. Exordinary temple at Panchvati. Must visit. Autos are the cheaters for New pilgrims. Directions to pilgrims from the management is not upto the mark at Panchvati. Historic, Significance of SRIRAM and asthetic culture must be more publicised for this area in all parts of the Nation. Jai Hindu
