#Temple in Ramtek

Ramtek temple is away from the crowd of the city, situated inside a fort on a hilltop and this temple is a source of rich mythological history. Ramtek is believed to be the place where Lord Rama, of the epic Ramayana, spent some time during his exile with his wife, Sita, and brother Lakshmana before leaving to conquer Lanka therefore making Lord Rama the main deity to be worshipped here.

Ramtek temple is also popularly known as Ram Dham, Ram Mandir, and Ramtek Fort Temple. The temple has an elevation of 345 meters from land and is believed to be 600 years old. It is most famed for the 350 feet long and unique OM structure that is adorned with descriptions from Ramayana and idols of Hanuman, Sai Baba, and Gajanan Maharaj. 'Padhukas’ (divine feet) of Lord Rama are worshiped here. At the foot of the temple, there is a big tank called Ambala Talab which used for ‘pittu pooja’ i.e. immersing the ashes of the dead.

"The place is beautiful, the scenery on the way is awesome...! Facilities are horrible. If it was in a Western country, it might have been the eighth wonder of the world. Badly maintained. Don't miss going further to Khindsi Lake from here, and take a boat ride. Very nice at Khindsi"
