Sita Gumpha Caves - Review

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.

Sita Gumpha Caves, Nasik Reviews

  • Very nice and holy place.... Great place for spend time with family as well as friends... Best location for take great view of Nashik City and surrounding area.... Cool place for chill in all time of year...

  • Mythological place ....really nice experience when we go through caves ...but heavy weight people think twice before entering in it because it's very narrow and small ....

  • Very nice temple! Very peaceful and you need to take a guide here. It is tough to go inside as the main shrine is inside a cave.

  • Historical place, cave temple is very nice but place is dirty and not maintained properly.

  • The place -Panchwati derives its name from the five Vad trees, located near the Sita Cave. The place finds references in Ramayana, it is said that Lord Rama Mata Sita and Lakshman spent their exile at the this place for some time. It is also believed that the demon King Ravana abducted Mata Sita from Panchvati using his maya or powers to assume different forms. Maarich the Commander of Demon King was killed by Lord Rama here.
