This place is in a crowded place and you need to stand in the queue to enter in to the cave. You really need to be slim to enter in to the cave as the passage way is very narrow. Avoid going inside during summer time as you would feel suffocating. It was another experience inside the cave. You should... More

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

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
