About 169 kilometres from Mumbai, Nasik is an old city and a pilgrimage destination. Nasik has a wonderful history. Nasik is a place closely associated to Hindu mythology, particularly the Ramayana. Lord Ram made this place his home during the 14 years of exile called ‘Vanwas’. They lived in an area now known as ‘Panchavati’. Why the name Nasik? The city gets its name because of an incident where Lakshman, Rams’ brother cut off the nose of Ravana's sister-Surpanakha as she tried to seduce Lord Ram. Also, Lord Hanuman was born close to Nasik, Anjaneri. Every place that you visit speaks a lot about the Indian history.
