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.

Best lord Rama's temple to visit. The carving of stone is so fine. It is marvolous.
This is holy place for Hindu. This temple has really amazing structure. And the details of work is stunning. Parking is a issue for four-wheellers. This is an amazing piece of art. It's located in Panchvati
It's 300 + years old ancient Lord Ram temple. Built of rock stone. Serene and peaceful. Lord Ram, Sita and Laxman spent there time at this place during exile.
Shri Kalaram Mandir ('Temple' are called as 'Mandir' in Hindi) is a beautiful and peaceful place. The name 'Kalaram' comes from word 'Kala' in Hindi which means 'Black'. As the idol is carved in black stone it is known as Kalaram .It is said that the temple is built of a huge black stone. There are idols of Lord Rama, Devi Sita and Laxman in the temple. The temple is an amazing architectural example.
Kalaram mandir is Nice historical temple. I love it's structure. The Murti of Lord Ram's is very beautiful.
