Truly a "Great Land" and the most fascinating region of India. This third largest state is one of the most industrially and commercially developed states of India. Its chief city Mumbai, is the true Financial and Industrial capital of India. But modern Maharashtra is not the bustle of industrial and agricultural activity or the frenzied pursuit of wealth progress alone. Very much part of the everyday scene anywhere in the state are the signs of its great religious, cultural, historical and martial heritages.
Maharashtra offers a traveler idyllic bliss in a land blessed by nature. Quiet and beautiful hill stations, secluded palm-shaded golden beaches, placid lakes and warm springs and a variety of wildlife. These are all part of a land created as it were, only for a relaxing holiday.
The commercial capital of the country. The city that never sleeps. These are among the phrases used to describe this burgeoning metropolis.
Mumbai pulsates with activity. It is a city that is disciplined by no time frame-neither by day nor night. Mumbai is also the country's financial powerhouse, the nation's industrial heartland, and its economic nerve centre. Dazzling shopping arcades, exciting sport activity, night clubs and discotheques, theatre and music, gourmet restaurants and interesting sightseeing - Mumbai offers the visitor a heady mix of all this and more.
Named after the Emperor Aurangazeb. Aurangabad is a pleasant city that is better known as a base for visiting the Ajanta and Ellora Caves
