Apart from its temples, Nashik also has forts, waterfalls and vineyards to look out for.

More on Nashik


Nasik is an ancient city situated in the state of Maharashtra. Famous for its deep association with Hinduism & Buddhism, Nasik is the cultural hotbed of Maharashtra. Most of the devotees visit this holy site for its strong association with the epic 'Ramayan'. Not very far from here is Panchvati, the woods where Lord Ram, Lord Lakshman & Goddess Sita resided in exile, before Raavan abducted Sita.
Also present here is the Anjaneri Hills region, which is regarded as the birthplace of the famous monkey god, Lord Hanuman. Equally famous is the holy jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva at Triambakeshwar, the spot from where the Godavari river originates. Very few people know that in Bhagur, 16.6 km. away from the same, famous freedom fighter and Hindu nationalist leader, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar had taken birth. So next time, if you wish to have a slice of both cultural beauty and adventure on the same platter, do visit Nasik. 

Nasik offers an impressing variety in food from Maharashtrian, Gujrati and Marathi to South and North-Indian cuisines. Traditionally, the cuisine here is Maharashtrian with influences from Gujarat and Rajasthan.

Apart from the numerous restaurants, one must indulge in the street food here which is a significant part of the town's food culture. The food on the streets is as rich as that of any other place in the area. One must try misal pav and its many hot and spicy versions. The other street food offerings are vada pav, vegetarian and non-vegetarian rolls, sabudana Wada, biryani, momos and thukpa.

A good place to visit with ghats and cloudy whether!! Too much of business than actual religious activities. Sita Gufa, Panchvati are just simple godly places to visit but not too much to be expected for!!!

A very good and informative, unique and one of its own kind place, one must visit is "Museum Kohum". It is situated at ABB Circle, Mahatmanagar, Triambak Road, Nashik. It gives you a lifetime experience about your own existence from birth to death from scientific and spiritual perspective. It shows various concepts through the beautiful models in three major parts- Life before you are born; The Language of your life and the Magic that you are inside. You should not miss the opportunity of seeing this wonderful creation, f you are in or around Nashik... it is open on all working days between 10 AM to 6 PM
