These are some of the famous tourist destinations in Maharashtra, however in this website I have covered many of my favorite places which makes you to pack your bags and visit them.



Information about Maharashtra

Maharashtra Geography

Bounded by Gujarat in North-West, Chattisgarh in East, Madhya Pradesh in North, Andhra Pradesh in South-east, and Goa in Southwest, Karnataka in South, and Union Territories Dadra and Nager Haveli in West along with the vast expanse of Arabian Sea beyond…..I am Maharashtra for the uninitiated!

My shape is mostly triangular with 450 miles/725 km Western Coastline as the base and tapering interiors approximately 500 miles/800 km towards the East. A leader amidst Indian states in industrial and agricultural production, education, transport and trade I also boast of a rich, glorious past written in tales of valor and romance.

History of Maharashtra

Archaeological evidences place my origin to third century BC. Since those early days, I was the hub of commerce and trade. You can know about the prosperity I enjoyed in those golden days of yore from the writings of Hun Tsang, the famed Chinese traveler who visited here during 640-641 BC. The Mauryans ruled the lands during third and fourth century BC and there was great advancement in the fields of Buddhist learning and trade at this time.

After Mauryans, Satwahanas established their empire and remained in power between 230 BC and 225 AD. Vakataka and Chalukya Empires followed with Rastrakuta rulers in quick succession and all through this exchange of power, I remained a prominent centre for art and culture. The dawn of 17th century saw the rise of Marathas who established the most glorious Empire, much credit to the great ruler Shivaji who is today the part of folklore.

Culture of Maharashtra

To explore Maharashtra Tourism you must understand my culture. Marathi is the native language of my people and I boast of a vast cultural heritage. Lord Ganesha is the most revered deity but all religions and cultures find a place of importance on my land with their sites and monuments.

Traditional clothes are kurta, pheta, and dhoti for men and saree-choli for women. Traditional dance forms reflect my richness and diversity one of the most interesting among them is Povda. You will be mesmerized with the performance that revolves around Shivaji. The most participated festival is Ganesh Chaturthi still, Holi, Diwali, Muharram, and Eid all are celebrated with equal fervor.



Cuisine of Maharashtra

Marathi cuisine has two main branches namely- Konkani and Varadi. The former is the signature of the Konkan or the coastal belt containing a mix of Brahmin, Goan, Malvani, Saraswat, and Guad cuisine.

Varadi cuisine belongs to the non-coastal regions –Vidarbha. In traditional preparations, vegetables have an aromatic, sedate delight whereas meat and fish is spicy, hot, and steamy. Konkani cuisine shows heavy use of various spices and coconut.

    I haven’t see such a nice website dedicated to Maharashtra Tourism. Maharashtra has its own values, its a state of warriors, state of saints, a state of Shivaji Maharaj.
