Nasik - India 2006

Standing on the Godavari, one of India's holiest rivers, Nasik is peppered with hundreds of temples and bathing ghats. It is an absourbing, colorful town and the Ramkund is the focal point for Nasik's pilgrims. The Ramkund's waters are believed to provide a liberation of the soul for those whose ashes are immersed here. The lively scene is enhanced by a colorful market, further down the riverside (from The Lonely Planet)
