It is an ancient kshetra sanctified by the association and inhabitation of many celestials and Maharishis. It was renowned as the southern Kasi. The name is a corrupt form of Nasikya thereby means nose, the spot where Surpanaka lost her cars and nose for making amorous overtures to Rama and Lakshmana. There are about sixty holy temples, and famous kunds in front of them. Among them Sundar Narayana, Kala Rama, Narusankar are famous. Each has a fascinating story of its own. Their dimensions, rituals; sculptural adornments, deserve an indispensable visit. Here lies the Panchavati too, where Sri Rama lived with brother Lakshman and Sita during his exile. The temple Kala Rama is perpetuating his memory with several periodical festivals and it is deemed one of the finest modern temples in North were India. It is in its vicinity of 7 KM lie a group of old Buddhist caves called Pandu Lena Caves, built some 2000 years before. Moreover, this sacred kshetra has been held very sacred since the Kritayuga and has been called with different names such as Padmanagar in the Krita yuga, Trikantaka in the Treta yuga, Janarthana in the Dwapara yuga and Nasika in the Kaliyuga. Its fame due to habitation by Maharshis, like Agasthya etc. in the Jansthan lent spiritual glory to the whole of Bharat.
