Can be maintained better

Visited during December 16 .. nice peaceful atmosphere nearby .. many small temples in the region .. However the water body appears stagnant and needs to be cleaned .. maintaining the region properly would enhance tourism in the region further ..

Holy place

We did peaceful darshan here of Panchvati and Godavari River. Was a sacred and revitalizing experience. Several small temples in close proximity in this area which we had visited. A very powerful Shirdi Sai Baba temple on the outskirts is a must to visit for Darshan. An area where Sugreev and Hanumanji did there worship is also seen here. I would recommend spending a good 90 minutes or less walking around this area and absorbing the spiritual energy all around.

Sacred because of the history

This is just a part of river Godavari which is sacred because of the history. People today immerse mortal remains (Arthi) which is believed to be absorbed in the water quickly.Fact. Mahatma Gandhi's ashes were buried here.

Sacred as Har ki Pauri

Ram kund @ nasik .. is considered one of the sacred places equivalent to Har ki pauri , and the Alahabad ghat.The pious river Godavari has her existance here.One can also visit the equally sacred places like Panchavati n Tapovan which are close by.This place is a must visit during the Maha kumbh mela which happens once in 12 years to witness our heritage.

Awesome to visit here

I went nashik in September first week, enjoyed alot. It was awesome trip during kumbh mela. There are so many hotels you can stay around kund area. I took kumbh snan in the morning. The kund was very clean, the arrangement was very good. In evening I went Trymbakeshwar and returned back to the hotel. Overall nashik is very good city and holy place to visit.
