Nasik or Nashik is a religious city in Maharashtra located in the northwest part of the state of Maharashtra. Nasik has been called the “Wine Capital of India" and is situated in the Western Ghats, on the banks of River Godavari. This city has proved to be the best ever rising metropolis in Maharashtra and has grown immensely in the past two decades.

Legend Sri Rama with his brother Lakshmana and wife Sita spent 14 years of their exile at Tapovan near Nasik. At the very place Lord Lakshmana slashed off the nose of Surpanakha, with the blessings of Lord Rama and therefore this place is named as "Nasik” which means nose. A number of references to the Ramayana era are related with Nasik, which include the Sita Gumpha caves in Panchvati.

In accumulation to supplying the name to the well-known Nassak Diamond, the city is recognized for its charming environs and enjoyable weather. Nasik is one of the world's holiest Hindu cities. Kumbhmela is organized here in every 12 years with four additional cities in India.

Nasik around 150 BC was supposed to be the country's major market. The city was under the ruling power of Mughal’s in 16th century and was renamed Gulshanabad. It is also famous for its contribution in struggle of independence of India. This is the birth place of known independence fighters like Veer Savarkar and Anant Laxman Kanhere.

The Wada design, an excellent example of a climate control structure still adorns the streets of old Nasik. Trimbakeshwar just few kilometers from the city has one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples and thus attracts many pilgrims.  The way to Shirdi and the abode of Lord Sai Rama also passes through Nasik. Mukti Dham a temple in pink marble has sanctified deities from all major temples in India.  

A Stone Age site makes for an archaeological view for all history lovers. Many museum in and around the city, adds more for the ardent travellers. Nandur- Madhmeshwar on the outskirts of Nasik is a delightful venture for all the bird lovers to site some of the rare species of birds. Deolali camp besides being an old military center is also a perfect gateway.

  • 5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
AMAZING it was, all it took was a little extra care while driving your own personal vehicle, a lot of fun it was and then we recognized that nashik is really a good place to visit, if you're living in Maharashtra then you must give a visit to Nashik as it is a big pilgrimage place.

"Great Place for tourists"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
There are so many cities in India. But Nashik is outstanding in the world. Nashik's natural beauty is too great for tourism. There are so many places in Nashik to see like as Tryambakeshwar, Ganga Ghat, Mukti Dham, Bhakri Dham and many other places. I must suggest to everybody to go and stay for some time in Nashik.

"a beautiful place"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Well about 1 months ago we go to trip at angeri hills in nashik for just fun. Anjaneri is about 20 kms from Nashik,near Tryambakeshwar. Nashik is a paradise for tourists. Actually when I visited Nashik, little did I imagine that it has so many things to. Beautiful nature around though you have to climb a lot. Heaven for climbers and trekkers. carry your own water and food as you get nothing up Very good place for trek, and it’s really height one can feel thrills and excitement, mythological it’s the birth place of hanumana and the hill is named to the same, so good.

"A visit to Nasik with my family in September"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Nasik is known as City of temples and is one of the holiest places for Hindus inviting thousands of tourist every year like me also. Scenic beauty of Sahyadri range of mountains merged with vineyards & agricultural yields (Highest in India) and a busy hub of Industrial activities. With the onset of monsoons and the start of Kumbhmela, Nashik is a paradise for tourists with Historical Caves,Temples, holy rituals, museums, wet lands and lots more. Guys please visit Nasik once in your life.

"An industrial hub with beautiful places"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
A small city. An industrial hub having very good atmospheric conditions surrounded by hills and picturesque places nearby. Due to lack of rains, we could not visit Bhandardara and Dudhi Falls and similar sites. Nevertheless, visits to places like Gargoti Mineral Museum, Sula Vineyards, Saptashrungi, Navshya Ganpati, Coin Museum, Trimbakeshwar made our visit worthwhile. Gargoti and Ibis Hotel were the best places that happened during the visit and will be remembered forever. Recommend all visitors/tourist to stay at Ibis and visit Gargoti.

"Cool climate with good quality food and fruits"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Jul 8, 2014
I spent almost 30 days in Nasik. The climate was very cool. It was not a good place for shopping because everything is very costly. You will find good quality food and fruits. The Gangapur Dam is also a good place to visit. Shirdi is very near to this place and you can travel there through local bus.

"Very Nice for Religious and Adventure"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Jan 8, 2014
Lot of places to see in Nashik. You need to stay for atleast 10 days to cover Nashik and its surrounding places. Be careful with the taxi drivers/cab fellas otherwise you can relax and see the places at peace.

Panchavati, Sita Gufaa, Goreram and Kalaram Mandirs, Kapaleswar and Soneswar Mandirs, Sri Ganeshya Mandir, Bhakt Dham and Mukti Dhams, Tapovan.

Sri Triambakeswar, Brahmagiri Hill (I did not go up as you need to take 1 whole day to go up and come down, arthritis or rheumatic people are not advised to go but still dholi is available), Saptashrungi, Saputara Hill (it is in Gujarat and is a best place to visit during festive or new year time) and Anjaneri Hill.

Bhandardara (a very old Amruteswar temple, 5000 years old) and Kasara Ghats are lovely. See Arthur Lake, Wilson Dam.

Go to Sula Grape Vineyards and Godavari river adjacent to it. Beware! Do not go beyond 2-3 steps as the river is very deep, I heard it is more than 250 feet deep.

If possible visit Jawahar (famour for Worli paintings) Hill Station. I could not go there as I did not have time.

Best time to visit is during August to October. However, in December, you can still enjoy the beauty of the place.
