A to Z Challenge - M - Muktidham, Nashik

There are many nice places to visit in Nashik. In my last post ( Link) I wrote about specialties of Nashik. I had really less time to see many places. So I just visited Muktidham , Nashik and Nashik market. Muktidham is a marble temple complex honoring various Hindu gods. It is a popular tourist attraction situated in the Nashik Road suburb of the city of Nashik in the State of Maharashtra in India. It has replicas of 12 Jyotirlingas, which have been built as per dimension of original deities and have been sanctified by sending them to their respective pilgrimage centers.
Further, there is a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna in the Muktidham complex. The walls of Krishna temple has paintings depicting scenes from life of Krishna and Mahabharata. These were painted by a noted painter Raghubir Mulgaonkar, whose services were employed by the founder of Muktidham, Jairambhai Chauhan. Also unique to this temple are eighteen chapters of Geeta written on the walls.
The temple is made with marble from Makrana in Rajastan, and by Rajasthani sculptors.Apart from the replicas of all the twelve Jyotirlingas, temple of Sri Krishna there are also idols of all major Hindu Gods and Goddesses like VishnuLaxmi RamaLaxmanSitaHanumanDurga, Ganesha . Muktidham is amongst the tourist attraction of town.

    1. Trimbakeshwar temple is very famous but is much crowded. This place is near to Nashik Station and is much less crowded. It was a very peaceful experience. It is a must visit religious place in Nashik, near to Nashik station
