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.
