History of Nasik

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 birthplace of known independence fighters like Veer Savarkar and Anant Laxman Kanhere.

"A religious and relaxed city"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Nasik is a must go if you worshipped Lord Rama or Lord Shiva. It give you a chance to feel and live with our ancient and proud history. Connect yourself with godavari, enjoy monsoon rain, once landed in Nasik you will find yourself surrounded by mountains with cool breeze which takes away all your worries. People are polite and soft. At any point of time if you feel bored then rush to Sula, a famous vineyard. Learn how to make a wine, enjoy some rocking music in serene environment and taste some exotic wines of world. So whether you a spiritual or like modern lifestyle, Nasik aka Nashik fits everyone.

"One of the best cities in Maharashtra"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 6, 2016
This city has variety of beauties. If one is seeking spirituality, Nashik has Trimbakeshwar, Kalaram Mandir, Someshwar, Saptashrungi Temple, also Mangi Tungi which is a sacred place for Jains.

Apart from spiritual places, Nashik is surrounded by natural beauty from all sides. It is enclosed by Sahyadris by all sides so it is one of the most favourite trekking destination for nature lovers.

Nashik also has very a nice infrastructure and it is improving day by day. It is ranked the 16th fastest developing city in the world.

3-4 days are sufficient to explore Nashik.

We visited Nashik city and the Muktidham temple. City is nice, good traffic sense, cleanliness in the city was good. People are cooperative. Muktidham temple is one of the most beautiful temples, where all Hindu Gods and Goddess are at a single place. Than we visited Trimbakeshwar temple which is 31 km away from the hotel, it is one jostling among 12 jyotirlings of Lord Shiva in Hinduism. This place is between hills and in the monsoon time it looks beautiful and live water falls you can see in surrounding, and fogg increasing beauty of the place. Temple is built from black stones looking v.

"Very good travel by road"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 30, 2016
If you love to travel in the hill then this is the right place. Safe driving must be during hill areas. Also please avoid night travel if possible. All places are very good to explore and must visit. Love the panoramic view from the mountains. In rainy season just avoid some mountain areas as it's too slippery. Also the food is very good and hotel facility is also good. Must visit wine yard of Nashik.
