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.

Sita Gumpha Caves, Nasik Reviews
Amazing experience. Believed that Seeta maa was here during the stay. It's very narrow entry and takes you inside a cave. There is small temple of Lord Rama. Another temple of Lord Shiva is also there. Suggested to visit with precaution. Specially take care of small kids.
Nice place and crowd, if you are visiting than also visit the market you will rs10 /kg pomegranate and ladies purses are cheap in ruppes but not in looks.
It's great experience, place is narrow. Need more info on planks outside or nearby the temple.
Very nice temple! Very peaceful and you need to take a guide here.
It's fun to explore the cave, but not permissible for elderly people or people having any physical problems and asthma. To enter this place people have to crouch and move through it. Enjoyed totally.
