About Ramkund

In 1696, this holy tank was built by Chitrarao Khatarkar that spans an area of 27 m by 12 m. It is believed that during the period of exile, Rama and Sita used to bathe in this tank or ‘kund.’ This tank contains holy water and even today, the ashes of a dead person are immersed in this tank by religious Hindus so that the dead can attain salvation. Some of the renowned personalities whose ashes have been immersed in this tank are Indira Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Y B Chavan.

"Can be maintained better"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Visited during December 16.. Nice peaceful atmosphere nearby.. Many small temples in the region.. However the water body appears stagnant and needs to be cleaned.. Maintaining the region properly would enhance tourism in the region further..

"Holy place"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Feb 27, 2016
We did peaceful darshan here of Panchvati and Godavari River. Was a sacred and revitalizing experience. Several small temples in close proximity in this area which we had visited. A very powerful Shirdi Sai Baba temple on the outskirts is a must to visit for Darshan. An area where Sugreev and Hanumanji did there worship is also seen here. I would recommend spending a good 90 minutes or less walking around this area and absorbing the spiritual energy all around.

"Sacred because of the history"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Dec 21, 2015
This is just a part of river Godavari which is sacred because of the history. People today immerse mortal remains (Arthi) which is believed to be absorbed in the water quickly. Fact, Mahatma Gandhi's ashes were buried here.

"Sacred as Har ki Pauri"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Nov 29, 2015
Ramkund in Nashik is considered one of the sacred places equivalent to Har ki Pauri, and the Allahabad ghat. The pious River Godavari has her existence here. One can also visit the equally sacred places like Panchavati and Tapovan which are close by. This place is a must visit during the Maha kumbh mela which happens once in 12 years to witness our heritage.

"Awesome to visit here"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 1, 2015
I went Nashik in September first week, enjoyed alot. It was awesome trip during Kumbh Mela. There are so many hotels you can stay around area. I took Kumbh snan in the morning. The kund was very clean, the arrangement was very good. In evening I went Trimbakeshwar and returned back to the hotel. Overall Nashik is very good city and holy place to visit.

It is the place where Lord Rama and Sita used to bathe. The Adhkumbh(half kumbh)mela is held here in every 12 years. It is going to be held after two months this year in 2015. Very sacred and holy place.

Ramkund is main holy place in Nashik. It is most visited place by people in India. Ramkund is situated on Godavari River in Nashik. It is also called as Panchvati too. Ramkund is near from CBS Thakkar market bus stand. The distance is near about 1 or 1.5 km from bus stand.
