  • Poet Kalidas Memorial @ Ramtek, District: Nagpur, Maharashtra, India It was at Ramtek that the exiled 'Yaksh', the hero of Kalidas's poem 'Meghdoot' (Cloud Messenger) sent a message to his beloved in the Himalayas through a cloud. Hence this Kalidas Memorial has been built here. It is a nicely constructed single storey elongated structure with a terrace running on the top. The walls of the the open ground floor has murals from Kalidasa's plays (Abhijñānaśākuntalam, Mālavikāgnimitram & Vikramōrvaśīyam), poems (Meghadūta, Kumārasambhava, Raghuvaṃśa). There is a single domed enclosed structure which has more pictures and poems on the wall. There are a few open domed strucures in the complex and a huge water fountain in the centre. The fountain probably is nonfunctional. We heard that the maintainance of this place has not been optimal for a few years after Ramtek Municipal Corporation took over from Public Works Dept of the State Government. Overall this place has a very inspiring atmosphere and best viewed ay sunset and may be also at sunrise. You can also take a nice walk of few hundred meters from one end of the terrace to the other. There is ample parking facility. Good attention from the authorities will make this place a 5 star place.
  • Scenic and good information available and good picnic spot
  • Nice idea to give tribute to great poet Kalidas... The place is open for visitors... But still it is under construction...
  • Good one
