The city of Nashik, situated at the foothills of the Western Ghats and on the banks of the River Godavari is a well known travel destination in Maharashtra. Nashik is a very old city in India, so much so that it has been referred to in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, the two very ancient literary work collections. It is believed that when the immortal drink “amrita” was being carried away from the “asuras” after “samudra manthan”, it spilt in four regions. These four regions later became the four shrines where Kumbh Mela is celebrated. Nashik is one such shrine and therefore tourism in Nashik has strong religious base.
Other than the Kumbh Mela, the Nashik tour also involves places that would be of interest to not only the religious folk but also to people who indulge in history. Popular tourism places, in Nashik, include Panchavati, where Rama stayed with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, when on exile; the Ramkund, the Muktidham, Kalaram, Sundarnarayan, Trimbakeshwar and Someshwar temples.
Owing to the predominantly tropical climate in Nashik, the city is famous for its annual harvest of grapes, oranges and onions.
The city has been christened to be the “Wine” capital of India. Nashik has a total of some twenty two wineries with the Sula wine yard being one of the very famous tourist attractions of the city. Some other sightseeing places in Nashik would include the Coin Museum, the Nandur Madhmeshwar Bird Sanctuary, Deolali, the Ramshej Fort, the Tringalwadi Fort, the Harihar Fort, the Anjaneri Fort, the Dugarwadi waterfalls, the Tringalwadi lake, the Chambharlena caves and the Pragati Aerospace Museum, to name a few.
