Panchvati is a major tourist draw in Pilani. It is built and managed by the Birla Trust in Pilani. According to Ramayana, Panchvati was the place where Ram went to live during his vanvaas or exile. Panchvati in Pilani is a place which tries to re-create the different episodes of Ram's life. It is situated in a large green area, which has a number of trees, shrubs and bushes giving the feeling of being in a forest. The area has thousands of aloe vera plants, mud passages and pagdandis.
In the middle of the greenery, life-sized figures of Ram, Laxman, Sita, Hanuman and other characters of Ramayana have been placed. The figures are attempts to narrate and re-create various events of the holy scripture of Ramayana. The place takes one back into the ancient and mythological world and gives an impression that one is in the actual Panchvati forest where Lord Ram lived.
The tourists coming to Pilani should visit Panchvati for the enjoyable experience it offers to the visitors.
