Hinduism - Who Is Panchavati In Hindu Mythology?

 


The area where three of the epic's principal characters—the god-king Rama, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshmana—live throughout most of their fourteen-year forest exile in the Ramayana, the earlier of the two great Indian epics.

Ravana, the demon-king of Lanka, kidnaps Sita from this location.

Although the events of the Ramayana cannot be precisely placed, a town called Panchavati outside of Nasik, Maharashtra, is associated with the fabled setting.
