Built where Tulsi Das wrote Ramcharitmanas

Only 150 meter south of Durga Temple near Durga Kund is the Tulsi Manas Temple built in 1964. Its two levels of walls are engraved with verses and scenes from the Shri Ram Charit Manas, the Hindi version of the Ramayana. Its author, poet-saint Tulsi Das, lived here while writing this. This Temple is on the spot where Saint Tulsidas composed the Ramayana in Hindi (Ramacharitamanas).Built in white marble and dedicated to Lord Rama, the Tulasi Manas Temple, has engraved the verses and scenes from Ramcharit Manas on its walls.

It is a vast building of marble that was built by a rich merchant family of Kolkata. The walls of the large two-level hall are covered with marble plaques engraved with the text of Ramacharita Manasa, a version of the Ramayana written by the poet Tulsidas at the end of the 17th century. At the bottom, in the temple, are performed the performances of Rama, Sita and Lakshmana. Lord Rama is incarnation of Lord Vishnu. A statue of the Sage Goswami Tulsi Das is placed down the stairs on the left. One will not fail to go upstairs to visit a small museum with nominal entrance fee which attracts many visitors. There are scenes animated by automatons dressed in rich clothes, narrating episodes of the Ramayana. The compositions are realistic, well designed and sympathetic. It is certainly the most original temple of Benares.
