The entire place is manmade. I could see the fibre put inside the Gufaa to give an authentic feel. the experience of going through the narrow walkways is different and you can try it once. It isnt all that hard to breathe inside.

The term Gumpha or gufa or gufaa means a Cave. Rama, Seetha and Laxman had to spend 14 years of forest exile. After spending more than 11 years in Chitrakoot they moved to Brahmagiri, near present day Nasik, to spend the remaining period. During that time they selected the place where five Banyan trees were stranding close to each other,... More

Well the sita gumpha is next to the kalaram mandir it is small round shaped tunnel going in the ground with only 1 exit, you can get seriously claustrophobic inside, be careful if you are claustrophobic.

They claim that the cave is natural but atleast part of it is man made. You can touch the roof of the room where the idols are kept. It is soft roofing painted like black stones.

Not for the Obese though as the cave is so narrow that you literally have to squeeze through. After all it is Sita Gufa and not for the Kumbakarnas of the world.

Narrow way to enter inside caves, yet well maintained, clean. There is an idol inside the caves. From this location you can get an auto to cover other places of Nasik at nominal price.

This temple is very near Kalaram Temple. This is a cave temple,very narrow inside. Do not try if you are clastrophobic and also unable to climb up or down the steep steps in a narrow and dark passage. Quite dark inside and the passage is very small. Gupha means cave and legend says that maata Seetha stayed here before she... More

One of the tourists attractions of nasik,this cave was a new experience for me.The place as in such is very small and the cave is quiet narrow.If one is afraid of closed spaces then this place should be avoided but otherwise its one of the mythological landmark places to visit in Nasik.

part of panchwait complex, this is any interesting place to visit. if you are a heart patient or having constant high BP, this is not a place to be recommended for you. you will be amazingly surprised after the visit.
