It is located 7 km from the Varanasi railway station and is devoted to the Ram Charit Manas written by Goswami Tulsidas. It is said that the epic was composed at this very place. The serene surroundings of the temple give a welcome break from the jostling crowd at other temples. The walls of this temple are adorned with verses from Ram Charit Manas.
Varanasi is the city of Temples, Ghats. Kunds and Galies (narrow lanes). The spectacular long sweep of ghats on the holy Ganga is unique and creates a fascinating sight. Life, in almost panoramic detail, unfolds here from dawn to dusk as a steady stream of devotees, swelling to thousands on auspicious days, perform rituals.
This marble temple, near the Goddess Durga Temple, is dedicated to Lord Rama. It is situated at the place where Goswami Tulsidasji lived and wrote the famous epic Shri Ramcharitmanas. Verses from Shri Ramcharitmanas are inscribed on its walls. There is a museum in the premises which has a rare collection of manuscripts of the Ramayan and other artefacts.
