Sundar Narayan temple is very beautiful and situated near holkar bridge.
The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and famous for its intricate carvings.

Temple houses the idol of Lord Narayan, Lakshmi & Saraswati

However it is now in bad condition and needs a renovation.

Lord Vishnu has 1008 names to his credit. Narayana is the most popular name uttered by his Bhakthas (devotees). In mythological stories wherever sage Narada makes his appearance, he would enter the stage uttering ‘Narayan-Narayan’. This is a well known fact. The Sundar Narayan temple near Central Bus Stand in Nasik is dedicated to Lord Vishnu by that name. The main door is facing east. It is designed in an expert manner to make the sun rays to touch the lotus feet of the idol on 21st of March every year. The other apparent specialty of the outlook of the temple is that it is built completely using black stones. The eye-catching architecture and the round dome with ornamental ring would really attract your attention. The arched corners would make one to remember the Mughal monuments. The sthala purana (local history) says that Gangadhar Yashwant Chandrachud built this temple during 1756.
When I entered the main shrine I was astonished to see lord Vishnu along with Lakshmi and Saraswathi on either side instead of Lakshmi and Bhudevi, which is traditional scene in Vishnu related temples. Bramha, if, considered as son of Vishnu then Saraswathi, the well known consort of Bramha would be the daughter-in-law of Vishnu. Probably Vishnu has extraordinary affection for his daughter-in-law for her simplicity and intelligence and as a goddess of learning. That is why he has taken a snap with her in this shrine. Whatever may be the reason or cause of action for this combination the idols are very much pleasing and look lovely of adoration by one and all. With this impression in mind I bowed to the deities with all reverence and appreciation to the artist who made these idols that are worshipped by millions of devotees every year.
I saw some other interesting carvings of Hanuman, Narayana and Indira on the walls of the temple. In this temple there are three veranda with seating arrangement and circular domes. This delicately carved stone temple has many other noteworthy features. On the way to river Godavari from this temple I saw a pool of water said to be Badarika Sangam Pond and also close to Ahillyabai Holkar Bridge. This is a must see dot for tourists in Nasik.
Lord Narayana with the added adjective of Sundara (beautiful) carries his own mythological legend, which has enriched the sanctity of this temple welded with religious sentimental attitude to the devotees.
The entrance to this Sundarnarayan Temple is to through the East. Though the two mandapas are small, there architecture is well crafted and little ornamental cordons make the round dome attractive. The arched recesses are impressionistic of the Mughal style, because during the Mughal rule, the Muslims demolished many temples and graveyards were built in its place.

To reach this temple taxis are available from the railway station and Nasik Airport. Nasik is well connected to neighboring cities in Maharashtra by public and private and tourist buses. Nasik Darshan buses are also available for tourists to see the local places of attraction in this city. There is railway Station which is about 9 Kms from Nasik city center.

The temple has beautiful architecture and is located in the center of the city. The idol of Lord Vishnu to which this temple is dedicated is very nice and the temple is kept very clean.
The surroundings of the temple needs to be maintained. The water body near the temple is very dirty and needs to be cleaned.
Do visit the temple and enjoy the architecture.

Near ravivar karanja before start of the holkar bridge this a beautiful temple, the architecture is such that the Sun's rays fall on the feet of Vishnu, there is no light in the inner sanctum, and you can see some very unusual murtis inside for different gods. must visit, post visit just sit on one of the stairs & take in the show of evening nasik in your front.

Sundarnarayan temple is located at the corner of Ahillyabai Holkar Bridge in Panchavati area of Nashik. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu adorned by paintings & intricate carvings. However, outer layer of the main sanctum and sanctorum has been removed completely now-a-days for renovation purpose.

Beautiful temple and the quietest as well. Its a short walk from the Ram Kund area, yet very few devotees reach here. The young priest was very helpful in identifying all the Gods and permitted us to take pictures too.Do check out my blogs for more.

This is small temple on the banks of Godawari, very close to Ramkund. Club your visit with Ramkund. Nothing great about this humble place.
All the visiting places are around Panchavati Karanja. All the visiting places are around Panchavati Karanja.
