MTDC RAMTEK-KHINDSI

 

RAMTEK-KHINDSI

 

Address : At post/Tal-Ramtek Dist-Nagpur. 


Ramtek gets its name from Lord Rama who, with Sita and Laxmana, is said to have rested here.The taluka,


 which is situated along the north and north-eastern areas of Nagpur District, covering anarea of 1129 sq.


 miles, is famous for its Ram Mandir and the Kalidas memorial to the celebratedplaywright, which grace the


 top of a hill.Fascinating aspect to the place is that the stones of the hill, when newly fractured,


 take on a bloodred colour in sunlight, apparently reflecting the blood of the demon Hiranyya Kashapu when


 he wasslain by Lord Vishnu in the avatar of Narsimha. Legend has it that, after his victory.Lord Vishnuthrew


 his cudgel down with such force that it made a crater which now forms the Ambala tank atthe foot of the hill.


 Around the tank are a number of temples, including two to Narsimha as well as anumber of


 Jain ones. A trip to Ramtek, especially during the Ramnavami festival, will prove auniquely fascinating


 journey, where history, geography, and spirituality blend seamlessly to providean unforgettable travel


 experience.
