Love in the Times of Ram Sene

A Ram temple that looks well protected by a Mughal fort. And some one who will solve all your ‘love marriage problems’ advertising in a Ram temple. At a time when Ram Sene wants to change the world!

Ramtek was not in our initial itinerary, while we planned the Pench trip. Like it happens in many of our trips, Ramtek turned out to be an interesting detour.

We do not have much historical information and background of the place, though we tried gathering some from the information boards inside the temple. The story goes that Lord Ram rested at this place while on his way to Lanka to rescue Sita.


The first thing to notice was the temple, at the top of a hill, is fortified with structures, distinctly of Mughal architecture.

As we climbed towards the main entrance, on one of the walls was this notice about someone who could help on your love problems!


Ramtek is a small town about 42 km from Nagpur and is 7-8 km off Mansar, on the Nagpur – Jabalpur highway. Ramtek has its place on the tourist/pilgrimage map thanks to the Ram temple atop the hill.


It is also said that Ramtek’s beauty inspired poet Kalidasa to write Meghadootam. The annual Kalidasa festival is considered as one of the richest cultural events of Maharashtra.
