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.

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This was a devotional trip. Apart from Nashik, I also visited Shirdi and Shani Shignapur. All the places are very religious place and having numerous temple in and around. All the places are having number of temples, so travelers become busy visiting there. Grapes and pomegranate are very cheap and good in these areas.

"Nice trip"

  • 4.5/7

This place is like out of your tension and worries of your life. We had only a day in Nasik in our tour. We went to Trimbakeshwar and Mahakali temple in Nasik. I advice to visit Trimbakeshwar in morning as you will face less crowd hussle. Be a hard core bargainer. Make sure that you see wineries during your trip in Nasik.

I thought Nasik was a boring place and kind of village, so I avoided never thought of going to Nasik but this time my office friends decided to go. So had to go. I was amazed to see the will mill place, Sula vines. It was amazing. The city is away from the pollution. We went by car. The journey did not seem tiring even though we spent more than 6hrs. It was good experience to spend a holiday in Nasik, full of fun, lots of enjoyment.

"Religious visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We went on religious trip to shirdi and nasik. Other than Sai baba temple at Shirdi other temples worth visiting are:

Shanishringneshwar - around 70 kms. From Shirdi

Triambakeshwar- around 30 kms from Nasik

Shript shringi, around 60 kms from Nasik

Kapaleswar, in Nasik

Kalaram in Nasik

All these temples are very old. It is dedicated to lord Shiva. The construction of temple and carvings are worth seeing. Especially in Triambakeshwar temple. It's architecture is worth seeing. Its dome is made beautifully and has very nice carvings. The temple is around 400 years old and has lot of religious importance. It is one of the main jyothir lingas in India.

Shript Shringi- Temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga, it is situated on a hillock. We have to climb total 550 steps. The place is having natural beauty of western ghat mountains. The place is very scenic.

"Holy Land, best of religious place!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
We travelled within a radius of about 180 kms from Nasik to visit Holy places like Triabakeshwar Jyotirling, Panchvati, Godavari River, Shirdi, Shani Shingnapur, and Saptahshringi Mata temple by taxi. We stayed 2 nights in Nasik which is fairly central to all these religious places which allowed us easy access. The roads from Mumbai to Agra highway were good and comfortable. The journey did not seem tiring even though we spent 3 full days on the roads. There is a lot more to see around Nasik if you can spare the time. But ours was merely for pilgrimage purposes and nothing more.

Best dharmik place in whole India. Everyone should once visit Nashik. There are many place to visit like Trambar, shirdi, panchavati tapovan and many more and the most important part is the weather of Nashik.

"Good place to visit if you are religious"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Lot of temples. If you are a kind of religious you will enjoy like anything. Trimbakeshwar, Anjaneri etc are few examples. The restaurants are limited. So select a hotel where good restaurant is available. Express inn is one of the best hotel. Heaven seven, Hi 5 etc are budget hotels. Plan only for 2 days if you are only going to Nashik. Vineyard visits, Gangapur dam etc are some of attractions (but actually not that big deals). It is better plan at the time of monsoons. Plan Saputara along-with Nashik so that you will get a good visit.

"Nashik never seen before"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Feb 9, 2016
I thought Nashik was a boring place and kind of village, so I avoided at many occasions to visit but this time my room-mate who lives there forced me to come with him and promised me to show something its other side.

I was amazed to see the back waters, Sula vines, the wind mill place. Its was so mesmerising away from the pollution in the nest if nature which actually exists in Nashik. Along the outskirts near a place called Bhagur in Nashik, there are row houses which is a pleasant to watch. I'll recommend to visit the wind mill place.

City Of Pilgrimages. Nashik is totally beautiful. Loved the peace and cleanliness in city. Also all the citizens are honest, loyal and helping nature. All areas and wards are beautiful just like river Godavari. As it's a wine capital of India and all the credits goes to Sula Wineyards. Awesome experience in the city. City bus are available for travelling or you can choose private Autos lije Jugnoo Autos which can be booked over one click through mobile app. Overall experience was pretty good and nice.
