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.

"Very good travel by road" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

"A trip to Nashik"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I had been to Nashik by road in the month of March 2016. Nashik is one of the important stop-over in the Tourism circuit of Maharashtra. The must-visit attractions around Nashik include the Godavari river, Trimbakeshwar temple, Vihigaon waterfalls. The Godavari river flows from Western India to South India near Rajahmundry. The Trimbakeshwar temple was built in 1730 by Baji rao Peshwa and is one among the 12 sacred Jyotirlingas. Water falls from a height of 120 feet in the Vihigaon waterfalls.

Nashik is developing in a very big way. It has all the infrastructure to develop. It has big cos like VIP Zandu etc on way. Many good hotels and restaurants, cinema houses are there. Transport is very easy and cheap too. Like autos, taxis, buses etc. Many housing societies are coming up. Good no. Of ancient temples are here. Like, Kalaram, Trimbakeshwar, Muktidham etc. As a tourist place it is good. , Also, one can go to Shirdi Sai Baba mandir and Shani shingnapur from here.. By bustaxis etc. In all, it is a likable place.

"Bad time to visit"

  • 3.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Visited Nashik just before monsoon was to arrive which actually turned out to be a wrong decision. Climate was very hot. Godavari had dried up so no charm in visiting Triveni and Sangam. Nashik administration is not at all paying attention on maintenance. All the historical places are dirty and no caretaker at all. Roads around Panchwati and Ram kund is very dirty with rotten fruits thrown around.

Good point is improvement in infrastructure of Nashik. Hats off to 2 bridges one towards Mumbai and Aurangabad and 2nd towards Shirdi.

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.

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 Mar 6, 2016
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.
