Wineries - Nasik is famous for its grapes. Not surprisingly, it is home to a large number of wineries. You can undertake wine tasting trips in any of them or spend a good day relaxing in their peaceful and lush environs.

Muktidham Temple - 7 kms away from the city, this temple is a popular religious site. Built in white marble with an unusual architecture, it has all the chapters from the holy epic, Bhagwad Gita, inscribed on its walls.
