There are three kund : ram kund, sita kund and lakshman kund. Named on lord ram, sita and Lakshman. the story behind naming of these kund in godavari river as per hindu mythology is the three lords took bath during their banwas here. Also one more story with this place is lord shiva took bath and named as kapaleshwar.

Visited on 14th August'14 and due to monsoon the water levels were high. Holy place and has significance to Hindus and is also part of history which every Indian should be proud of. Note: the place needs to be kept clean and more work from local administration needs to be done.

Ramkund is one of the important historical place from Lord Rama's Era. He used to take a daily bath here. Also Hindu devotees immerse Asthis at this place. Many of Hindu devotees visit this place at the time of Kumbhmela to take holy bath.

Beautiful ghat of godavari river. The water was absolutely fresh & cold. You can take diyas and leave them to flow in the water with a wish in mind. Had a great time bathing there. They even have seperate provisions for women to change on first floor.

We visited this holy place in the night and there was hardly any crowd.one lady was sitting there selling Diyas.We floated diyas in the water where Ram was believed to take a bath. We could not take a dip in chilly night in this sacred kunda but liked the quietness of the place.
