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.

Worth a definite visit to feel our... More

The place is very reminiscent of India's rich cultural legacy. The Holy Godavari river flows through this Ramkund. Having said so,..i feel saddened to write that the place is dirtied by scores of people coming over & there seems to be no system to ensure effective & timely cleaning of the river.

Performing the last rites for the departed frees his spirit from this reincarnation. With the immersion of the ashes, the physical form returns to the five elements it was made up of. A sense of fulfilment prevails to the bereaved as duties are complied with.

This place is one of the most visited sites in Nashik... It's a landmark place in the city but poorly maintained.located in the heart of the city.
