Pleasures for Pill-Grims..Ramkund
Ramkund is a sacred tank, built in 1696.
Chitrarao Khatarkar got it constructed 27mts.
by 12 mts. The aborigines state that Lord Rama
and his consort Sita used this tank for bathing during
the years of exile. Hence, it is also very holy. There is a
common belief that if the ashes are immersed in the
holy waters of this kund, salvation or moksha is easily
achieved. The Muktidham Temple
The Muktidham Temple is located near the station,
around 7 kms from the city. The temple has been
built with pure white makrana marble tiles
making it a unique piece of architecture.
The distinctive feature found here is that,
eighteen chapters of the Bhagwad Geeta
are written on the walls of the temple
The Kalaram Temple
The Kalaram Temple, built in 1794 by Gopikabai Peshwa,
is another architectural grandeur, with the motif,
pretty much analogous to that of the Trimbakeshwar
Temple. This 70 feet high structure has been built with
black stone extracted from the mine of Ramsej Hill.
The copper peak of the temple is gold-plated and looks
ravishing by day and night as well. The idols of Lord Rama,
Sita and Lakshmana are sandy black decked with ornaments.
Gyrating this temple, are various small temples dedicated to
Lord Vithala, Lord Ganesha and Lord Hanuman.
Shirdi lies at a distance of 122 kms approximately from this place and is dedicated to Sai Baba. The place witnesses devotees lining up right from the wee hours in the morning to attain the blessings of Sai Baba. The darshan is available throughout the week, but Thursday is especially considered as holy for the Baba. Nearby is the Dwarkamani mosque, where the Baba is believed to have meditated and slept on alternate nights. Just next to the mosque is a long corridor. Here, the eternal flame burns day and night.
