GARGOTI is the mineral museum located in Sinnar near Nasik.Gargoti is a Marathi word which means flint stone. There they have marvelous zeolites.
Few years back when I came to Nasik and heard about it,I was not much interested to visit there, I thought this must be the place for researchers or geologists to visit.
Once we were on that way so decided to check it out. Again I thought to sit outside and let my husband go in, because Rs 100 ticket was too much for me to see some kind of stones!!
Finally though reluctantly I got in and was completely awestruck as entered there. I could not believe that those kind of amazing stones can be there under the so boring rocks!! Blue, green, pink and various shades of zeolites are just awesome! There arrangement (patterns) in the rock is unbelieveable!!
Since then I have visited the museum many times.It made us think that how beautiful rocks are from within!
Nasik is a holy city(in every 12 years “kumbh mela” occurs here).People do visit here as its near to shirdi .One should visit “gargoti”too.I believe nothing can be holier than the mother earth herself!!

There web site is,


  • zaroor nasik visit karenge, agar aap invite karenge toh.

  • Well what i meant by that was
    All indian housewives are like that, and you are no exception. You actually did go in, my mom would never have done that
    P.S. And by saying typical i mean no disrespect. Indian housewives are the biggest contributors to what we see today as success of india.
