The memorial is a tribute to the great poet Kalidasa and the place is a huge lawn with aesthetically designed outdoor architecture with a large fountain at the centrestage. The place is still under construction with some more features to be implemented, and when it gets functional, it will be a great evening attraction for the visitors. The memorial has... More

You can visit this place on your way to Ramtek. I can see people mis utilizing the great place with liquor and food wastes throwing here and there. Security is very poor in this place. Not properly maintained.

The idea of having Poet Kalidas Memorial is very good; the location on the hills and close to the lake is good; the place is not too far away from the large city of Nagpur. However the implementation of the concept makes the whole thing just average. Maintenance leaves much to be desired. Ultimately it turns out to be just... More

Why do we spoil what we have and not make full use of the space that we have in our monuments. Built with charming nooks where one can imagine writers and poets congregating , why is the place so bereft of literary festivals, vernacular theatre and staging of Kalidasa's plays ? We can do so much with the monuments that... More
