Maharashtra is India’s third largest and the second most visited tourist destination by foreign tourists. The vast, multi-faceted and sprawling state of Maharashtra can best be understood by browsing through Maharashtra Travel Guide. Having bustling cities like Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabad and some of the most awe-inspiring hill-stations like Mahabaleshwar and Matheran; Maharashtra is amongst India’s fastest growing and populous states of India.

It is located on the western coast of India; apart from gold-sand beaches like Aksa Beach, there are treasures like Marine Drive meant for rejuvenation. Bollywood film industry, which is gradually taking over the world of cinemas thrives here in Maharashtra.

And when it comes to religion, history and heritage; Ajanta & Ellora Caves, Shirdi, Haji Ali Dargah, and Mount Mary Church are endowed with profuse charm. Former rulers further adorned the state with their signature architecture and added cherry on the cake. This is evident in Gateway of India, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Pratapgad Fort and many others. Also, festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Ellora Festival and Banganga Festival give an insight of Maharashtrian culture.

Beaches, heritage, history, spirituality and festivals combine to cause a blooming scenario of tourism in Maharashtra.
