Nasik Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: Pilgrimage
  • Altitude: 1870 m
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.

"The grape and wine capital of India" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Nasik is best known for its grapes and sula wines. Barely 3 hours by road from Mumbai and about 4 hours from Pune, it is also a growing industrial city. Nasik has relatively good dry weather like Pune. Lots of hotels to suit varying budgets have come up in the city. Home stays and conducted wine tours are also becoming popular. It is on the Mumbai-Bhopal railway line and is well connected from Mumbai. The road from Mumbai is pretty scenic and good. Igatpuri and Bhandardara, two popular picnic/resort locations are fairly close to Nasik and can be covered with base in Nasik.

"From temple city to wine capital" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Ever since Sula introduced some really good wines to India, Sula Vineyards has become the benchmark of Wine Tourism in India. Nashik famous for its temples is now also a popular destination for wine enthusiasts like me, which boasts of the biggest and best vineyards in India.

At the forefront is Sula Vineyards, which offers an educative wine tour at their sprawling farm along with wine tasting. Apart from wine tour and tasting they also offer grape stomping (seasonal) and you can also buy their acclaimed wines there at a discounted rate. Sula also has a resort 'Beyond' a little farther ahead which is a beautiful place to spend a couple of nights.

I personally like their award winning red wine 'Dindori Reserve Shiraz'. They also have a Dindori Reserve white wine, which you may feel free to try. And, you if are as enthusiastic as me you wouldn't hesitate to drive a couple of km ahead to reach 'York Wines' which produces some excellent wines. York Wines also conducts wine tour and tasting, something similar to Sula, I most certainly insist that you reach their winery by about 5.30 pm take their tour and wind up with a glass of their fantastic sparkling Cuvee Brut in their lawns which boasts of best view of sunset. You can also buy their wines there. So, go ahead-get ready to swirl your wine glasses, our friends here at HolidayIQ will help you book the best hotels, Cheers!

"The pilgrimage city" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
There are so many cities in India known for pilgrimage but Nasik is just awesome.
The city is named Nasik, which is derived from Sanskrit word nasika (nose). Ancient mythological Ramayan story describes this place where Laxman cut off the devil Suparnakha's (Rawan's sister) nose. Nasik's natural beauty is just too awesome and that too if its rainy season there's hardly a pace where greenery is absent, a treat to the nature lovers and a great tourism destination. There are so many places in Nasik to see like as Triambakeshwar Temple (Jyotirling), Panchvati, Ganga Ghat, Mukti Dham, Bhakri Dham and many other places. Also the Shirdi Temple is nearby and well-connected to Nasik by road.

"A good destination"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I had gone to nasik and visited infant church, it is a good church. There are lots of people who come there to visit the church. There were lots of shop & restaurant. One can go by train or bus or by car also. There are lots of private busses which leaves from dadar Mumbai. To Nasik lots of people come, there is also good market. One can also go to Shirdi also, it is close to it just 2 hrs journey from there.

  • 5/7
  • Posted Sep 24, 2014
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 Sep 5, 2014
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 Aug 25, 2014
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.
