Set against the River Godavari, Nasik delightfully displays its ancient past in its relics and magnificent temples. The Kumbh Mela is held at twelve different places and one of them is Nasik too. The foundation of the city is built on legends and myths. The city has its trademark spires and domes rising over conventional industrial estates and residential areas.
