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.

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.

It is one of the peaceful place one can go and it is really good to go to Shirdi once in a year with family. Nasik is famous for other places as well and oranges. I love to travel to Nasik when it comes to weekend time a way long to reduce stress from work and all.

"Nice weekend drive, Nasik"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
A small little town filled with vacation opportunity just a drive away. My dad wanted to visit Trimbakeshwar temple so planned this trip to Nashik. But what a trip it turned out to be, a trip without itinerary but one of the most memorable one. There are lots of spots you can stop and take a small breaks. Roam around the grapes wine yard, lots of others garden filled with veggies or flowers. Talk to locals and have a time of your life. First time I loved driving my car.

"Religious city with scenic surroundings"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
First and foremost - its the city of pilgrimage. If you've a religious side, you'll love the temples, colours and daily rites and rituals at Panchvati. Plus the Kumbh Mela here occurs once every 12 years, so its a photo-enthusiast's destination to be. There's Muktidham (all Hindu Gods under one roof), Ram Kund, Kapaleshwar Temple, Naroshankar Temple, Sundar Narayan Temple, Kalaram Temple, Sita Goompha, Tapovan, Laxman Temple, and many more religious sites to visit. Most of them are stunning.

Also there's one of the 12 Jyotirling's - Trimbakeshwar. Its stunning in sculpture plus the holy pond - Kushavartha where Godavari's waters collect before flowing through rest of India. Then there's Pandavleni Caves - 2000 year old ancient rock-cut Buddhist caves which are worth a visit. There's Saptashrungi on a hill - one of 51 Shakti Peethas in India. Its worth a nice visit. Don't forget to visit Sula Vineyards, for the calmness and wine tasting. Late Reserve Chenin Blanc and Seco Rose are favourites - along with good finger food.

There are a couple of forts for the trekker in you. One is Harihar Fort - famous for chimney style climb and another is Anjaneri Hill with a fort and temple. The trek is beautiful in the post-monsoon times. There are a few dams of which Gangapur Dam is worth visit - its Asia's largest earthen dam. From street food you'll find a lot of Vada Pav and Misal Pav stalls. Plus also taste the Nashik style Biryani once. Also, there's good vegetarian food and hotels availability here. On religious events the city gets flogged by tourists. If you're not given to crowds, go in a different time.

From weather to places near by it has everything. From temples to trekking to wine yards you can experience everything. I went for a solo trip. Trekking, temples. A city to fall in love with. Best time to travel during kumbh melas. You will love the crowd at that time.
