Rāmagiri (रामगिरि) is referred to in Rithpur copper-plate inscription of Prabhāvatīguptā. The inscription purports to have issued from the temple Pādamūla of Rāmacandra, who is mentioned as Rāmagiri-swāmi, i.e., the Lord of Rāmagiri. The Poona grant of Prabhāvatīguptā is said to have been offered first to this temple of Lord (of Rāmagiri) and then to the particular Ācāryas. Itseems that the footprints of Rāmacandra established in the temple dedicated to Him were in worship in Rāmagiri in the fifth century A.D. Meghadūta describes the Āśrama on the Rāmagiri being sanctified by the ablutions of Sītā. The place was surrounded by the shady trees, extensive and dense jungle and reddish stones.
Wilson identified Rāmagiri with Ramtek, a taluq town of Nagpur district, forty-two kilometres north of Nagpur, three miles from Nandardhan, the capital of the Vākāṭakas. Mr. K.B. Pathak, however, suggested that Rāmagiri should be identified with Ramgarh hills in Suguja district, Madhya Pradesh, owing to its extreme proximity to Āmrakūṭa or Amarakaṇṭaka as specified in the Meghadhūta.Source: What is India: Inscriptions of the Vākāṭakas
Rāmagiri (रामगिरि) is undoubtedly modern Rāmṭek, about 28 miles north of Nāgpur. It lies only about 3 miles from Nandivardhana, modern Nagardhan, the earlier capital of the Vākāṭakas. In Kālidāsa’s Meghadūta, Rāmagiri is mentioned as the place where the yakṣa, exiled from Alakā, lived for a year. From the description in Kālidāsa’s poem we learn that the hill was marked by the venerable foot-prints of Raghupati (Rāmacandra), and it is noteworthy that the present grant was made by Prabhāvatīguptā near the foot-prints of the Lord of Rāmagiri.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
