Ramayana has it that Lord Rama, the King of Ayodhya, made Nashik his home during his 14 years in exile. At the same place Laxmana, by the blessing of Lord Rama, cut off the nose of Surpanakha and thus this place was named as "Nasik" (From Sanskrit word 'Nasika'). Several other references to the Ramayan era can be found in Nashik, which includes the Sita Gumpha caves, from where Sita, Lord Rama's wife, was abducted by Ravana. Nashik in 150 BC was believed to be the country's largest marketplace.
