History of nashik

The name of the city is believed to be derived from the incident when Laxman, brother of Lord Ram cut the nose (‘Naak’ in Hindi) of demoness Shurpanakha (Ravana's sister). The city is most famous for the 14 years exile time of Lord Ram, Goddess Sita and Lord Laxman when they use to stay in Panchavati. \n\nThe soul-purifying Kumbh Mela is organised on a huge level as crores of devotees enter the city for the Mela. Historically, Nashik was ruled by the Mughal Empire in the 16th century and later taken over by the mighty Marathas till 1818. Some of the important freedom fighters of Indian independence are from Nashik, like Veer Savarkar, Anant Laxman Kanhare.
