Nasik Map

Nasik is in the state of Maharashtra. Located on the Godavari River, of the holiest rivers of the Deccan, Nasik's riverbanks are lined with temples and vibrant bathing ghats. The city is also of the sites of the world's largest religious gatherings, the Kumbh Mela, which occurs every years with each city hosting it one time every 12 years. Nasik was the site of the Kumbh Mela in 2003 and is next due to host it in 2015. Even outside of festival times, Nasik is vibrant and alive as a busy pilgrimage circuit. Limitless pilgrims, beggars, sadhus, traders and religious specialists rub shoulders in Nasik.

Ram Kund, the holy bathing tank is the focus of pilgrims visiting Nasik. Ghats & the riverside market surround it. The Ram Kund is said to have been used by Rama & Sita in the work of their exile in the epic Ramayana. Its holy water is said to provide moksha or liberation of the soul to those whose ashes are immersed here.
