Things to do ,when in Maharastra

On the banks of Arabian sea lies the 3rd largest state of India,namely Maharastra.It is the birth place of the Great Maratha King Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj & it is today famously known as the enclosure of the City of dreams-Mumbai.Step here, be sufficiently prepared to be jostled, hurried, incessantly chatted to & suffused in the trendy yet vintage vibe of the city.Start with a visit to Shiddhi Vinayak Temple.Then go on a shopping spree at Fashion street.Pick up a pack of red fizzy Pallonjis raspberry drink & savour the berry pulao at Parsi joints of the Fort area.If time permits go on a ferry ride to the world heritage site of Elephanta caves . Come evening hit the pubs of downtown Colaba & thereafter take a lazy stroll on the long boulevard roadways of Marine drive.A dinner at the iconic Taj Hotel overlooking the Gateway of India will end your day on a high note.

Maharastra is not all about Mumbai.It’s rich cultural heritage & picturesque countryside will make you fall in love with the state.Spend a night in the door-less village of Shani Shignapur or take a holy dip on the banks of Godavari river at Nashik. Visit the World heritage sites of Ajanta, Ellora cave complexes & ‘Biwi ka Maqbara'(made to rival the TajMahal of Agra) at Aurangabad.Get a top angle view on the petite hill stations of Lonavala & Mahabaleshwar which are regarded as among the best.On way don’t forget to taste the popular Maharastrian foods like Vada paav , Paav bhaji & Pitla Bhakri. Not to forget to taste the super spicy asal(true) authetic non vegisterian food at a Kolhapuri Restaurant .I bet you won’t forget  the super spicy feeling after that ,burpp ! opps ..
