about nashik

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. It is a lso known for its proximity to the spiritual town of Shirdi. 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. 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 is also the grape-wine capital of Maharashtra and the home of one of India’s 12 holy Jyotir lingas, from which spring the sacred waters of the queen of Deccan rivers — the Godavari. And Nashik is, of course, one of the four cities that host the greatest of Hindu melas — the Kumbh. Modern Nashik is a mini-Mumbai, a hap hazard shamble of high-rises fringing both sides of the Mumbai-Agra Highway. The heart of the old city couldn’t be more different — a congested beehive of activity, with narrow streets and ancient temples throbbing with energy, piety and sales, through which flows a sacred Indian river.
