Little known Nashik has a lot going for it. Hosting one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, The Kumbh Mela, along the banks of the Godavri river, it is of great religious importance according to the epic Ramayana Poem. It’s also the heart of Indian wine country, home to almost half of all of the country’s vineyards. Each year it hosts SulaFest, a wine and jazz festival taking place during the harvest season. Festivals aside, history buffs will be interested in the Pandavleni caves, a collection of 2nd Century Buddhist caves. Told you there’s more to do than you thought in Nashik.
