About Nasik Kumbh
Nasik is a located on the banks of the Godavari River, the holy river which flows through old Nasik. The town is the highest producer of grapes in India along with onions. The Nassak Diamond, derives its name from the fact that it long remained in the Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple, near Nasik. The Godavari River flows through Nasik from its source, which lies to the southwest of the city, in Trimbakeshwar.

According to Ramayana, Lord Rama, the King of Ayodhya, made Nasik his home during his 14 years in exile. At the same place Lakshmana, cut off the nose of Surpanakha and thus this place was named as "Nasik"(in Sanskrit Nasika means nose). Several other references to the Ramayana can be found, which includes the Sita Gumpha caves, from where Sita, Lord Rama's wife, was abducted by Ravana.

The Nasik Kumbh mela celebration is held once in every 12 years in Nashik - it is scheduled for 2015. It draws millions of devotees and tourists from all over the country and the world. Trimbakeshwar is a holy town that houses one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India. It also is the origin of the river Godavari and is situated 38 kms away from Nasik. The Sinhasta Kumbh Mela is held once in 12 years in Nashik and Trimbakeshwar. According to historical records, Nasik is one of four places where the elixir of immortality, the 'Amrit', fell to earth from a pitcher as gods and demons were engaged in the tussle to gain the ownership of the jar full of 'Amrit'. The Kumbh Mela rotates among the four holy sites every three years. The Kumbh Mela is marked by millions of devotees' plunge into the river Godavari that is believed would cleanse their souls leading to salvation. A ritual bath at a predetermined time and place is the major event of the festival.
