If you believe in the folk lores,this is the place where Sita ji spent time with Lord Ram during banishment.It is a narrow cave every individual has to pass through, but if you are claustrophobic be cautious. It is situated in a crowded city area.For religious people,its worth going at least once.

To enter the caves - the tunnels are really narrow . you have to be fairly agile, slim and not claustrophobic. I could not go further in . Outside look out for the 5 banyan trees hence the name panchavathi

It was supposed to be the dwelling place for sita which is redesigned n modified and opened for public. A nice exp where u have to literally crawl n cross the 3 levels of cramped tunnels... More

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. I asked the priest about the antiquity of the temple. He said that the temple is not made but naturally present since the times... More
