Nashik is that city of Maharashtra, which gives you the taste of both, old-world, as well as, the new-age tillage. In this one city, you can travel over, from 1st-century Buddhist caves to present-time vineyards in a matter of few minutes. Flourishing with tender grapes, swirling around wooden sticks, and ancient temples rooted on Godavari River, Nashik is a state-of-the-art chronicle of India’s holy subsistence. Tales of this city never cease to amuse me, then may it, about King Ram, who bathed in Ram Kund or Queen Sita, who stayed at the Sita Gufaa or caves.
