Inspirock Rating:
3.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Enter an sacred cave under five ancient bunyan trees at Sita Gumpha, a popular Hindu shrine near Nashik. A very narrow staircase will take you down into the cavern believed to be the place from which legendary King Ravan abducted Lord Rama’s wife, Sita. This important tourist spot at a river bank provides some shade and you should plan ahead to avoid long lines. The cave has a shiva linga worshiped by Sita but you should bring a torch with you. Statues of Ram, Lakshman and Sita can also be seen in the cave, which lies 9.4 km (5.8 mi) from Nashik Railway Station. Plan your visit to Sita Gumpha and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Nashik vacation planner.
