Significance of Panchavati:
- [ ‘PANCHA’ – Five, ‘VATI’ – Trees]
- This combination of trees was mentioned in “The Ramayana”. When Rama along with Sita and Lakshmana took on to the 14 years of ‘Vanavasa’, halt a night at Muni Bharadwaja Ashram. Then he advised Rama to find a place where all these five trees exist together to make a place to live. So as per his suggestion they later make a ‘Parnashala’ amidst these trees. So where ever all these five exist together, Rama too resides there.
