3/4/2010 | India , Maharastra


It was the festival hump day in Nasik sandwiched between yesterday’s celebration of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj birthday, and Rang Panchami the day that Maharastrans throw color for Holi.  I decided to take the opportunity to visit the nearby city of Trimbakeshwar, a pilgrimage city worshiped as the source of the Godavari River.  I was a little disappointed at the lack of activity but there were a handful of pilgrims washing away there sins in the waters of the scared tanks and climbing up the steep hill side to taste the spring water at its source, in this case literally from the cow’s mouth, stone cow that is, which slowly drip by drip starts the holy Godavari River.
