To know why Nashik is attributed as a holy city, reading through the pages of a travel guide or even a thick history book won’t do. It is an enigma you have to unriddle with your senses. You have to walk the forests that once sheltered Prince Ram, immerse yourself in the sacred Godavari, touch the intricate carving on stone temples or even lose yourself in the intoxicating madness of the Kumbh… and only then will you be able to unravel the ancient, mythical legends that have made Nashik revered to a nation of millions.
