Maharashtra is a state in western India and is the second most urbanized state in the country.
It is not only the wealthiest, but also the most industrialized state in the country. Maharashtra has a lot to offer when we talk about tourism. Starting from the Ajanta and Ellora caves, which are one of the largest rock-cut monastery-temple cave complexes in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site presents artworks of different religions be it Jainism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. They are one of the major tourist attractions in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra. While in Mumbai, you cannot miss the famous landmark, the TAJ Mahal Palace and the Gateway of India, one of India’s most unique landmarks overlooking the Mumbai harbor, bordered by the Arabian sea in the Colaba district. Among other places of interest is the Iskcon temple, a compelling place to witness the celebrations of Lord Krishna. You would certainly like to visit the 3.6 km long boulevard based in South Mumbai known as the Marine Drive. Famously known as the Queen’s Necklace, Marine Drive is a spectacle in the night. Another famous sacred sites of visit is the Siddhivinayak temple dedicated to Lord Shri Ganesha. The Haji Ali Dargah off the coast of Worli in South Mumbai is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Mumbai. Maharashtra is also famous for its vineyards and the wine tours. Some of the famous culinary delights of Mumbai include the Misal Pav and the Vada Pav, which consists of spicy, deep fried potato based patty (called the “Wada”) sandwiched between a thick square of bread that is similar to a burger bun (called the “Pav”).
Though, you can plan your trip to Maharashtra all the year long, but the best time to be at this place is from October to March.
