» Ramtek Historical Sites and Sightseeing

Ramtek-heritage-site Ramtek town in Nagpur district situated at a distance of 57 kms from the city of Nagpur is the site of historic temples of Lord Ram and Lakshman believed to have been built in the 14th century. Ramtek was the place where Lord Ram rested when he was in exile. Located on average elevations of 345 metres these ancient temples are built of stone. There are 27 Brahmanical style temples on top of the hill.

The complex looks down from the hill to the open green expanse below providing great views of the rural landscape. Khindasi Lake is an important tourist attraction close to Ramtek. Shri Ramtek Teerath, a famous Jain temple on the outskirts of Ramtek town is also worth visiting. The place is well known for its connection to poet Kalidasa who wrote his famous epic work Meghdootum from here.

The highlights of the site are the celebrations and religious activities held here on the auspicious occasion of Ramnavmi. These events mainly center on the Ram temple located in the complex. This historic site and pilgrimage center dotted with the six hundred year old temples comes alive resounding amid the solitary hills. Ram Navmi is celebrated here amidst much pomp and splendor.

These pristine surroundings inspired poet Kalidasa to create his magnum opus Meghdootam. The Kalidas Festival is an annual event organized each November in his memory providing a rich cultural backdrop that adds to the heritage site. Other places of tourist interest include Ambala Lake, Nagardhan Fort, Museum at Mansar and Ramsagar Lake.
