Muktidham Temple – a tourist attraction in Nashik

Muktidham Temple in Nashik

Muktidham is one of the tourists’ attractions in Nashik. This is located near to the Nashik Road Railway station and easily reachable. This is a spacious marble temple which embraced all Hindu deities together. The replicas of all 12 Jyotirlinga also found here. Since all the deities are there in this temple and visiting here means you attain MUKTI hence the name of the temple is Muktidham.  Enough space inside and outside of the temple where one can sit and unwind. You can discover internal harmony here. Pilgrims are offered reasonable accommodation in their Bhaktniwas Dharamshala behind the temple.

Shopping and entertainment near Muktidham temple, Nashik


  • Surrounding of this temple is crowded with street shops and street vendors offering different items to the visitors. What I like the most to watch out and shop here are Earrings. Yes, there are so many earring designs on the shops and ‘thelas’, that too at a very low price ranging from Rs.10 to Rs.60. Of course, there are other jewelry items too but I always look for earrings. I just cannot resist myself.

  • Nashik is famous for grapes, wine, and raisins (kishmish). Here raisins you get at the price around half of the price in the market. None of the tourists are back without kishmish. There are lots of vendors selling raisins in one line. All types of raisins like black, brown, sonaka, the small one, longer one, etc are available, pick your choice, test it and take it.
