The ancient temple, may be 200 odd years old, was built in the name of Lord Ram, who believed to have spent his "Vanvaas" at Dandakaranya (which was the name of Nashik at that time) in Panchavati area of the city and is carved out of Black stones. So the name Kala (means Black) is derived from the stone from... More

This temple is some 200 yrs old and the deity in the garbhgriha are the real ones which are placed here since ages. In place of today's black stone architecture it was a temple made up of wood.

Located in the Panchvati Area. The Temple has good vibes. Puts you at peace. Visit in the evening around 7.30. Thats when they have the Aarti. If you just want some peace then go between 6 to 7.30 when it is quieter. Please recheck Aart timing.

The best time is to visit is at night. The temple is so silent so that I can feel his/her heart beat and can connect to the deity. Historical mythology and should be visited in Nashik.

This temple gets its name from the fact that Rama was travelling in the forest and became dark complexioned. The temple has been recently modernised to some extent. Approach road is narrow. There is shoe stand for keeping your shoes but no one to look after the shoes.

See it to believe it. However, the Priests are least interested in you. You have to literally coax them to give you prasad or teerth.

The architecture of the temple and the images of the deities are breathtaking. The approach road is narrow and needs to be kept clean by the Municipal Corporation.
