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 Reviews & Ratings
Very narrow.I did not expect the entry to be very narrow. Had I known I would have thought twice before entering. The atmosphere was okay The crowd needs to be better managed.
Not for the weak hearted. You have to crawl, bend and slide to go inside and wait in a queue before going in. Nevertheless, it is a great experience for the fit.
2 months ago Very good temple. It is a part of Ramayana. When lord Ram and Sita were in jungle. Ram kept her in this gufa. NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAS HEALTH PROBLEMS AS YOU NEED TO ENTER THE TEMPLE WHICH IS IN A CAVE THROUGH A VERY SMALL ENTRANCE WHICH IS AROUND 3 FEET TALL.
Such a cute place this is.. Mother Seeta is really a great woman. I can't believe she lived in there for 1 day and 1 night.
Excellent place to visit and have darshan of Lord Ram and Sita in a cave. It might look a bit difficult and threatening but actually it's very interesting and wonderful experience.
