SACRED TANKS IN MAHARASHTRA

 
Ram Kund
 

This holy tank situated at Nashik, Maharashtra is 27 m by 12 m and was built in 1696 by Chitrarao Khatarkar. Hundreds of pilgrims arrive to take a holy dip at the Ramkund in the river Godavari. The river turns to right at an angle of 90 degrees. It is believed that Rama and Sita used to bathe in this tank during their exile. Religious Hindus even today, immerse a dead person's ashes in this tank so that the soul of the dead person can attain moksha or liberation. The ashes of numerous personalities such as Pandit Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Y B Chavan and others have been immersed at Ramkund.
