its a small crawling place and a cave after that.As per mythology, sita was never kidnapped. Bhagvaan ram made a image of sita and hid actual sita in this cave. What ravan kidnapped is the image of sita which is current age we call as the holographic image ?.

Sita Gumpha was where ravan came as a saint and took sita. It is such a historical place and mytological place. There is also a museum where the whloe story is narated.

Its a Historic precint and personally I love the place. Make sure you are flexible enough to enter the caves. Parking is not a very big issue in the area, but you will have to park your car down and a walk a few 50 steps to the caves. But it's a nice place.

There was a big queue to enter the cave where Sita was believed to have stayed. Once we got to the beginning of the cave we were taken aback by surprise. There is a small downward sloping tunnel with 5-7 steps. You have to sit down and slide down the steps as the tunnel is very narrow and short in... More

This is the place near to Kalaram Temple. Maa Sita lived here during their exile. The demon Ravana kidnapped Sita from this place. The gufa is very narrow and can go inside either by deeply bending on the saircase or semi crawling/sitting where we can find the idols of Lord Rama, Sitadevi and Lakshman. A sivalinga worshipped by them also... More

Can be bit suffocating depending on the crowd. Constrained space. There is a cave like structure going downwards, so watch your steps.

From Kalaram Temple we went to Sita Gumpha nearby in Panchvati. A good way to create the feeling of being in the cave associated with Sita and Ravana.. A queue quite big due to a stream of devotees having arrived in the Adhikmas for the Mahakumbh in Nashik on the Godavari river held once in twelve years.

situated near Shri KalaRam temple in Panchavati, it is said the Seeta maai used to take rest here. The location is in basement and the approach is very narrow. A very fat person must be careful.
