Best Things To Do in Maharashtra

One of the best things to do in Maharashtra is explore the interior of the state during the right season. Maharashtra is the most prominent and recognized state of India, located in the western region. It is the third largest state and the second most populous state in India. Located near the sea, it experiences a moderate weather throughout the year. The state is known for its unique culture which includes the dance, art, literature, food and other lifestyle.

As part of best things to do in Maharashtra, exploring Mumbai is an important part. The capital of Maharashtra is Mumbai, which is home to around 18 millions of people. Mumbai is a diverse city with many faces, on one side it lets one explore the pathetic slum life, while on the other side it lets one see the extravagant and glamorous lifestyles. Mumbai being a port city has many beeches where tourists can engage in sea activities with their families and friends. Nagpur, widely known as the city of oranges is the winter capital of Maharashtra, and is also a great place to visit from the tourist perspective. Shirdi is the a pilgrimage centre. The devotees of Sai Baba come here as this place is widely accepted as his hometown, where he lived most of his life. Pune is considered the cultural capital of Maharashtra, as it gives a quick glimpse of the vibrancies in the culture and lifestyle of the state. Maharashtra is not deprived of hill stations. Lonavala and Mahabaleshwar are exotic locations for hill station lovers.

Maharashtra is one of the most oldest states of India and thus it offers a terrific historical backlog. The state which appears to be the most furnished Indian state has gone through smooth and tough times in the past. There are many monuments depicting the life of different chronologies in an efficient manner. Ajanta Caves and Aurangabad are rich in heritage and historic transcription of the glory of the state. So, on a whole Maharashtra is a must visit place for the tourists across the nation and the world. Let us get into the brief of things to do in Maharashtra.
