Temples, wineries, orchids, industries... Nashik (Nasik) has all of these and then some. It’s this confluence of different realities that has left the town with a slightly confused identity. It takes pride in its ancient heritage but has all the aspirations of a modern city. It’s increasingly urban but in a pastoral setting. And sometimes it’s a throwback to older, slower times in the middle of a busy city street.
The holy city on the banks of river Godavri, it plays host to the pious Hindu Kumbha Mela every 12 years. Famous for its involvement in the Indian independence struggle, it is now the wine hub of the country. Also known for its proximity to the spiritual town of Shirdi. Owing its name to the Ramayana epic, Nasik is believed to be the site of Lord Ram, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana's 14 year long exile. Derived from the Sanskrit word 'Nasika', it is here that Lakshman cut off Shoorpanakha's nose for trying to seduce Ram. The famous Sita Gufa (or caves), from where it is believed that Ravana abducted Sita, stands testimony to this legend. Hosting the famous Kumbha Mela every 12 years, Nasik is also home to one of the 12 holy Jyotirlinga's in the country. In stark contrast to this piety lies its wine-production industry. Dubbed as the Napa Valley of India, this beautiful town surrounded by the Sayhadri Hills and the Western Ghats produces some of the finest wines in the country.

"Nashik"
reviewed on Jun 25 2014
As we know that Nashik is the place where the river godavari born and starts flowing from maharastra to andhra and flows into sea. After visiting that place i came to know so many interesting facts that Lord Rama been there once upon a time and i was so excited by seeing a picture of Rama which was drawn by an artist. There are some temples at nashik to visit.
