Also present here is the Anjaneri Hills region, which is regarded as the birthplace of the famous monkey god, Lord Hanuman.

Nasik Road is a Suburb of Nasik. It is famous for Army Aviation Base, Airforce Station, Devlali Cantonment, India Security Press, Currency Note Press, Eklahra Thermal Power Station to name a few. T (Read More)here is nothing much significant to see in Nasik Road other than Muktidham. Apart from that, you can visit Temple Hill in Devlali Cantonment area and then walk around in Devlali streets. But before that, you can visit Devi Mandir halfway to Baghur from Devlali. From there, you can optionally visit Devlali Railway Station. Avoid shopping in Devlali since items are relatively costlier but do visit Bharat Cold Drink House to quench your thirst or enjoy the tasty food. Whilst travelling to Devlali via the Lam Road, you will be able to see the Heritage Parsi homes and colonies on either side of the road, no doubt, Devlali Cantonment in itself is mostly heritage. You can easily cover all these places in one day. The best time to visit Devlali is in the evening. Mind you, don't even think of doing photography in the Cantonment restricted or prohibited area. Look out for the warnings and sign boards. The other day, you can visit Gargoti museum in Sinnar, about 30 km from Nasik Road.
