It is this territory that witnessed the scene of Surpanaka's adamant wooing Rama and Lakshmana one after another and losing cars and nose that gave the place the name of Nasika - nose that was later Anglicized as Nasik; it is in this region lie the Pandu Lena Buddhist caves; it is here exist many kunds named after the divinities and famous for Asthinilaya - immersion of bones and also offering pindas to manes; it is this thirtha kshetra classed as one of five centres of pilgrimage of all India importance; it was this place that served as the second capital for Maharashtra rulers; it is in this region lies Janasthana, where celebrated rishis like Agastya lived, and finally it was here in a cave called Gumpha in the hills lived Gorakhnath, the founder of the Nath sampradaya that played a great role in the religious history of Maharashtra.

Associated with the lilas of divinities, sanctified by the dwelling of the incarnated divinities and illustrious sages; visited by saints and acharyas; divinised by the holy thirthas, glorified by immortal writers in scriptures, patronised by famous rulers, this thirtha kshetra has been exercising great fascination as a premier centre of pilgrimage since the vedic times.
