It is believed that Ram, Sita and Lakshman stayed here. It is not surprising that the devotees have made it dirty. In the night lamps can be seen floating on the water surface which adds to the beauty of the place.

Dear fellow travelers, Though its a holy place according to Hindu religion, but local authorities have mismanaged this place big time. This place supposed to be clean enough t take dip in holy water but I couldn't stand there because of smelly water. Be careful while visiting this place. This place is surrounded by many important and holy temples. All... More

Try not to visit with a tourist mindset. If is actually a very holy place if you can divest yourself of the distractions. If you in the mindset bath in the waters. It is said to wash your sins away. Buy a flower pot thingy for 20 Rs. and send your departed loved ones into the next life. Be respectful.

Lots of pilgrims here as the waters of the Godavari river is said to provide liberation of the soul to those whose ashes are immersed in it. The lively fruit and veg market is great to spend some time wandering around, and adds to the atmosphere here Make sure you visit this area

Can't even imagine what it would have been like. Now, it is crowded and dirty. Still, we saw people in the water. If you have the faith, then its fine.

It is one of the holy place in nashik. It is also called as triveni sangam. But water is very dirty. As it is one of the holiest ghat on river Godavari, higher authorities should take care about it.
