The literature has played a very important role in developing the Indian culture. As we know Sanskrit literature begins with the oral literature of the Rig-Veda a collection of sacred hymns dating to the period 1500–1200 BCE.[1]. The main objective of writing this paper is to identify the various literary evidences of historic and religious place of Ramtek in Maharashtra and to understand the architecture of the place with context to its evolution and geographical setting so as to understand the importance of this place.
