The old city of Nashik is a treasure trove for visitors who are looking for an adventure deep down the history lane. We will start our tour in Panchwati, at the iconic Kala Ram Temple, where I will not only talk about this particular temple but also introduce you to the basics of Indian temple architecture. We will take the narrow lane, which will take us to Ramkund, the world-famous site of Kumbh Mela. I will narrate the mythological and ritualistic importance of this place. We will take a stroll along the river Godawari and see many more heritage sites like Na Ro Shankar Bell, Sundar Narayan Temple, Gora Ram Temple and the ghaat constructed along the river. We will stop at the most Instagram-worthy places along the way. We will take one of the oldest bridges of Nashik to cross over to the Old Town part where we will see the bhandi bazaar (vessel market) and visit the SarkarWada museum located in a 19th-century building. This building was the administrative office of the Peshwas, the prime ministers of the Maratha empire. This building is in the heart of Saraf Bazaar (jewelry market), where we will spend some time taking photos. This part of the old town is famous for old shops and beautiful wadas (residential complexes) unique to this part of the country. Here, I have exclusive access to a century-old residential complex. We end our tour with a cup of steaming hot tea.
I run a travel experience company in Nashik called Urban Serai. We curate unique experiences for tourists in and around the city. I have worked as a researcher and documentary filmmaker in the past and traveled the world before settling down in Nashik, my home town. I am an active member of the Nashik Historical Research Organisation. In the past, I have made documentary films on the history, culture, arts, and crafts of India. You can watch my film here https://youtu.be/ShRgi1sWTJ8 In the last many years, I have created a network of locals who are working in the same field and striving towards making Nashik a preferred tourist destination. Being a researcher, I make sure all the information I offer is authentic. I am passionate about travel and wish to create a safe and trustworthy travel companion in Nashik. Instagram @urbanserai

Nashik has a beautiful tradition of weekly markets, and the Wednesday Market on the banks of river Godawari is a sight not to be missed. So if possible, plan your visit around mid-week so that you can experience this unique market. Please book an afternoon (4 pm) experience for the market visit.
