Kalaram Temple - Review
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.

Kalaram Temple, Nasik Reviews
Any one who want to learn or know more about architect of ancient India, must visit this place. Less explored. Without any glamour unlike other historical & devotional places. What you need is time and peace of mind to enjoy and understand the importance of this place. Maintenance of this place is ok. But surrounding are filthy and dirty. Authorities must looked into. Otherwise existence is at stake. The architecture is beautiful and all made of Blackstone. Very usual in this part of country.
Shri Kalaram temple is an architectural beauty. Sita Gufa (caves) are breathtaking (to some extent, in lexical meaning too)
Calm and pleasant temple with beautiful architecture. Walkable distance from panchavati. Don't miss to see the Sita caves while here.
Nearby panchvati in nasik, this Temple is unique in a way that all idols are of black colour. Very neat and clean area.
The Kalaram Temple is an old Hindu shrine dedicated to Rama in the Panchavati area of Nashik city in Maharashtra, India. It is one of the most important Hindu shrine in the city. Its a great place to visit for the devotees. It has its own historic importance and a calm and clean environment around it. JAI SHRI RAM.
