About Sita Gumpha Caves, Nasik

The Sita Gumpha caves is situated proximate to the Kalaram Temple and is an important tourist spot owing to the folklore attached to it. It is believed that Goddess Sita dwelled in this place and was subsequently abducted from here as well by Lord Ravan.

The Shivlingam that she purportedly worshipped can still be found in the cave and is the major highlight of the caves. Devotees arrive just to catch a glimpse of the Shivalingam. There are five Banyan trees found on the premises, a reason why the caves are also known as ‘Panchavati’. The cave has idols of the deities Ram, Lakshman and Sita. The cave is only accessible by a narrow staircase and can be quite a challenge to explore.

  • Very nicely maintained ancient place. The actual place is under the ground. People can go down there through very narrow trench.

  • It's a small cave from inside. Where Sita was hidden during 1st war with Laxman. It's a holy historic place related to Hindu mythology.
