Nashik is considered as the temple city and also in recent times have become the wine capital of India, owing to the number of wineries in the city. It is one of the four spots where the Simhastha Kumbh is held every twelve years.Mythologically also this place is of great importance. It is believed that Lord Rama had stayed here in Panchvati during their exile period. Also, Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama, had copped off Shurpankha's nose at this very place and hence this city came to be known as 'Nashik' which in Sanskrit means the 'nose'.
