The path to the cave temple is too steep and very narrow down with a lot of steps and at times u have to crawl because of height issues. so it is not advisable for people who have knee problems , breathing issues and people who have extra pounds in weight.

Its a small place. Its like a cave. Very fat ppl or old ppl should avoid going in as they may suffer from suffocation or find it bit difficult although its not. Nice experience for me. The story of ramayana is also mentioned here.

Inside its cramped quite obviously the place being a cave but with so many people inside its stuffy and hard to breathe...i don't... More

A gufaa in Panchavati area of Nashik where Maa Sita & Ram believed to have stayed during their exile. Panchavati named so because of 5 banyan trees near the gufaa which still exists. SIta gufaa is not advisable for obsesity & heart patients because you have to literally squeeze yourself to enter the gufaa. It is difficult for elderly person... More
