Ramayana Chapter 17- Rama at Panchavati

Many sages were living in various parts of Dhandkaranya forest . Rama spent days, months and seasons meeting sages, enjoying their company and getting their blessings. 

                                                A period of 10 years passed peacefully and after meeting the sages Sarabhanga and Sudakshina, who were waiting to meet Rama before to leave their bodies , the trio proceeded to meet sage Agasthya. 

                                        They were welcomed by the sage Agasthya and invited them to stay in his ashram. Thereafter as directed by the sage they moved to a place situated on the bank of River Godawari known as Panchavati , a place with five banyan trees. This is the place Lakshmana built a beautiful bamboo hut for Rama and Sita to reside .
