Additionally Produced Were

All kinds of herbs were cast into the ocean and 14 Ratnas (gems or treasures) were produced from the ocean and were divided between asuras and gods. Though usually the Ratnas are enumerated as 14, the list in the scriptures ranges from 9 to 14 Ratnas. According to the quality of the treasures produced, they were accepted by Vishnu, the devas, and the asuras. There were three categories of Goddesses which emerged from the ocean;

  • Lakshmi, the Goddess of Fortune and Wealth - accepted by Vishnu as His eternal

  • Temples at Nasik
    Shree KalaRam Mandir
    This temple was built bylate Mr. Odhekar, a knight serving with Peshwas. There are great processions and utsav on Ramnavami, Dasara and Chaitra Padwa (Hindu new year day). The specialty of the temple is that it was built with black stones.The stones were brought from Ramshej 200 years ago. It took 23 lakhs of rupees and 2000 workers to build the temple in 12 years.This temple is situated at a distance of 3km from Central Bus Stand.

    Trimbakeshwar Temple
    Trimbakeshwar - one of the holy places of not only Maharashtra but the whole India is near Nashik. Trimbakeshwar is one of the Twelve Jyotirlingas in India. The following verse shall explain the importance of this sacred place and the next one gives names of the Twelve Jyotirlingas in India.

    This says that anybody who visits Tryambakeshwar attains salvation. There is no sacred place like Tryambakeshwar, no river like Godavari, no mountain like Brahmagiri etc. The reasons for its being so sacred are - Godavari river originates in this place, its a place of Tri-Sandhya Gayatri, the birth place of Lord Ganesha, a place of the first Nath of Nath Sampradaya consisting of Gorakhnath and others, a place where Nivrittinath was made to imbibe the holy knowledge by his Guru Gahininath, a place where Nivrittinath made his brothers and sister attain the self by his preaching. This is the holiest place to perform Shraddha ceremony. Nirnaya Sindhu - a religious book of Hindus, mentions that this place, where Sahyadri mountain and Godavari river exist is very purifying on the whole earth and is therefore very important for performing Shraddha ceremony.

    Naroshankar Temple
    Situated in Panchavati area about 2km from Central Bus Stand, on the bank of river Godavari - fondly called as ganga by Nasikites - is Naroshankar Temple of Rameshwar built by Naroshankar Rajebahaddur in 1747. The architectural style of the temple is called "Maya". It is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture of the 18th century. Sculpture on the outer side of the temple is stunning. It has rows of exuberant designs. One layer is of decorative lacework. The next one is that of peacocks holding bead garlands. In four directions are statues of the saints in Padmasana. There is also an assembly of animals - tigers, monkeys,elephants etc. This depicts that Hindu culture is not limited only to human beings but also has relation with birds, animals, trees, and nature in general. In its four corners are umbrellas - called "Meghadambari" or "Barasati". One of them was washed away in Godavari floods and only three are existing presently. The surrounding fortification centres a "Bell house" in the front part. The famous bell , called "Naroshankar Bell" is fixed here. The bell is a victory memorial over Portuguese.

    Shree Sunder Narayan Temple
    The Sundarnarayan temple is built by Gangadhar Yashwant Chandrachud in 1756 at a distance of 1 km from Central Bus Stand. The entrance of the temple is to the East. The architecture is attractive and the round dome is made by little ornamental cordons. The arched recesses are impressions of Mughal sclupture. The main deity is of Lord Vishnu - also called Narayana. To the left and right are Laxmi and Saraswati respectively. Fine design is carved on the stones of the temple. On the road leading towards Godavari River there is Badarika Sangam Pond. It is said that the king of Devgiri bathed and performed rites in this pond. We also find a mention of this pond in the holy book Dnyaneshwari. One remarkable thing about this temple is that it is built at such an angle that on 21st March, rays of the rising Sun first fall exactly upon the idols.

    Shree Kapaleshwar Mahadev
    Situated at a distance of 1km from Central Bus Stand, this temple is one of the peculiar Mahadev Temples in Nashik.The most prominent aspect regarding this temple is there is no idol of Nandi in front ofLord Mahadev.Shravani Somvar(Monday) and Shivra
