Outside looks like a usual temple. Inside is like a amusement park attraction. I'm a foreigner, and not knowing significance of Sita's residence. But definitely understood the unique and sacred atmosphere of this place. Thank you very much

This is the temple on the road side in Nashik town in Panchvati area. A temple is a small cave where Goddess Sita used to stay in Panchvati. A bit suffocating, since entrance to cave small but it is possible to go inside.
