Blessed with verdant hills, pristine lakes and ancient temples, Ramtek is a tourist's delight. The most popular attraction here is the 600 year old Rama Temple. According to legend the ashram of the Hindu sage Agastya was situated close to Ramtek. It is believed that Ramtek was the place where Rama, rested while he was in exile. While the sages performed religious rites, the demons used to disrupt their activities. Rama was distressed to hear about this, and took a vow to relieve the world from the demons. Hence the place came to be known as Ramgiri or Ramtek. This place is also related to the Sanskrit poet Kalidasa. It is believed that Kalidasa wrote Meghaduta in the hills of Ramtek.
