Located in north-west Maharashtra, one of the most popular destinations for pious Hindus, Jains and Buddhists and also known for its association with the epic ‘Ramayana’ is Nashik. Nashik not only has an ethereal and spiritual quality about it but is also a touch point for tourists who wish to explore its interesting forts and a unique centre that offers courses in ‘vipassana’. Nashik is famous for its numerous temples. The temple at Trimbakeshwar, one of the 12 ‘Jyotirlingas’ (the phallic emblem of Shiva with fire), is at the origin of the river Godavari. The city is also known as the ‘wine capital of India’ because of the large cultivation of grapes .
