I started my journey from Sita Gufa. It is a small cave, so using my crawling technique I go inside the gufa. Sit down the floor, keep your legs in front & move with your butt & leg by taking small small steps. Sita gufa is not advisable for obesity & heart patients because you have to literally squeeze yourself to enter the gufaa. Now moved to Kalaram temple which is walking distance from Sita gufa.

Tapovan is the sangam of two rivers Kapila and Godavari. Also there is a sita kund. Place is quite dirty and Godavari river is polluted. Lots of street shops here sell juice, snacks and also some traditional products. After Panchavati, I go to Trimbakeshwar Mandir which is 30 km from Nashik city.

" As private cars are not allowed so, lots of Nashik darshan autorickshaw are available they charge around 500rs to complete all nashik temple also they are good local guide through which you get good knowledge about these places "

Trimbakeshwar Mandir is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga temples in India which is 30 km from Nashik city. As temple was very crowded, preferable Special Darshan(V.I.P) available near entry gate at Rs 200 per person completed within 15 minutes. The temple has amazing architectural masterpiece was very beautiful and the darshan of lingam generates happiness, here you can't touch the lingam. You have to take blessings from distance. Om namah sivay. I took Lots of pictures. We left Nashik and moved to Mumbai for next travel story.

Safety Tips And Other General Tips

There are lot of pickpockets around the temple premises. Keep your belongings very safely also keeps your children very close to you as it becomes really difficult to locate your kid in this heavy crowd. Mobile phones, video cameras, and other major gadgets are not permitted; you are required to deposit these in the lockers. You can leave your footwear in any shops and worry about it.

You can visit Shirdi( Sai Baba Temple) which is close to Nashik. Also you never miss out on visiting Mumbai( Dream City) . So, whenever you plan a vacation in Maharashtra, make sure to visit Nashik and take the blessings.

" Happiness is along the journey not at the end of it, you actually experiencing it in this road trip "
