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.
- Plan ahead to avoid last-minute rush.
- Carry a torch as it is quite dark inside the cave.
- Recommended time to visit between October – March.
- Proximate to bus stations.

A religious place with the story which says that this place was a living place of Goddess Sita. Fat people please avoid to enter as place is very narrow and flexibility of body is very much required.
Very historic place and of religious importance . It's been told that Sita mata use to stay here during there stay in panchayati and this is the place where ravana has taken them along to lanka. Just outside sita gufa you can see 5 vat tress from this only this place has derived it's name as Panchavati . Healthy people and castrophobic people should strictly avoid this place since it's very tight and suffocated place and one can easily feel trapped inside here .
Historical place sita guffa located centered of nashik and near kalaram mandir looking good and blessful also feel scared especially when enter inside guffa.shita mata and ram bhagwan was stay here. People's from different region across country comes here and feel blessing.
