The famous hill temple near Nashik
This hill temple is commonly known as Sapt Shringad (Vani Devi) among local people. It is a highly venerated temple in this region. I found the ride to this temple the best part of the trip. The landscape is beautiful and traffic on the road is almost next to negligible. Hired cars/taxis are the best option and monsoon or winter is the best time to go. During the months of Jan-Apr, the road is kissed by vineyards and grapes are available in plentiful all along the way. The return trip will take around 4 hrs. The temple is around 70 KMs from Nashik, on the Nashik Kalwan state highway.
