At Panchavati, the holy Godavri River flows on its northern banks where all religious works are done. This place is part of many ethical beliefs. As in history, this place is considered to be the most holy place as Lord Ram, Lakshman and Sita stayed here for a few days during their exile.
This place is considered sacred by many people. The name of this spot is taken from the five Banyan trees that stood aside the river. Panchavati, being a part of the Dandakaranya forest, has acquired quite a prominent place in epic history. Many people visit this place just to get relief from their misdeeds and sins by taking a holy dip in the river, as this place is very religious for them.
