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
Excellent tourist place. Mandir is unique and beautiful. God in sanctum sanatorium is in black instead of white marble as usual in northern India.
This place is worth visiting at least once in your life. Nice place but sticky floors.
Namaste All! One must visit this Temple atleast once in lifetime to experience the peaceful Bliss. Thank you
The temple is nice, with an ancient feel. The temple deities are black in colour and hence the name. I alongwith family visited on Ram Navami day when there was a long queue of devotees. A large police presence ensured order and we were able to complete darshan in about an hour. This is a good historical place to visit. The temple is made up of stones and archaeologist will love this place. This is located in the panchvati area which is very cramped and crowded. Big temple very near to sita gufa and the river. The place misses a chappal stand and because the entry and exit was separated to two distinct temple entrances, we had to walk bare foot in the scorching sun to fetch the chappals after darshan. Its very close to the ramkund and sita gupha and hence you can park your vehicle around the ramkund areas and walk to these places. Camera are not allowed here you will be amazed to see the temple out on one rock. Must Visit this place.
A place which make u feel meditated and calm. The only temple having black monoment of lord Shree Rama....
