Trip to Gad Mandir , Ramtek - Nagpur

Recommended Posts

Being Dasara Vacations planned a trip to Nagpur as my in-laws stay over there - Reached Nagpur By Train and planned this trip through All public Transport.

Ramtek is around 50 kms from Nagpur and journey around 1hr by Bus ,

Road was through - Kaamtee - Mansar-Ramtek

-- There is a Bus every 30 minutes from Nagpur and Same from ramtek - although connected through Rail ....Train takes a bit long time than Road

By Car it takes arund 45 minutes : Road Via Kaamtee which has some industrial layouts and expect some traffic hence little delays

One Toll Booth on the way...

Ramtek is  small town has some average hotels and expect nothing about food ...but you can find dhabas around Khindsi Lake and Resorts around the lake would serve food .

 

 

--  Ramtek has few places to cover :

  1.  Gad Mandir
  2. Khindsi lake - Here you can find some resorts and also Boating allowed ...Naturally formed lake and we can find a Nice garden around it
  3. Poet Kalidas Memorial
  4. Jain Temple
  5. Enroute one can find Boudh Satva Temple                 

 

 

Ramtek has got Historic temple of lord Rama. It is believed that Ramtek was the place where Rama, the Hindu god, rested while he was in exile. Legend has it that the aashram of great Hindu sage Agastya was situated close to Ramtek. While the sages performed religious rites, the demons used to disrupt their activities and slayed a great number of holy men. Lord Rama was distressed to hear about this, and took a vow to relieve the world from the demons. 'Tek' means vow in local language, hence the word Ramtek comes from 'Vow of Ram'. Thus it is believed locally that whoever takes a vow at Ramtek is blessed by the gods for its fulfillment. The 'padukas' of Lord Ram are believed to have been worshipped here for centuries.

The present temple is believed to have been built by the King of Nagpur, Raghuji Bhonsale, after his victory over fort of Deogarh in Chindwara. The present temple is 400 years old.

This place is also famous for its relation with great Sanskrit poet Kalidasa. It is believed that Kalidasa wrote Meghadūta in the hills of Ramtek. The former Indian Prime Minister Narsimha Rao contested his election from Ramtek Constituency.
