Maharashtra Tourism

The Indian state of Maharashtra lies along the west coast of India and is the third largest in the country. The state of Maharashtra’s indented coastline, enormous natural resources, fertile black loamy soil and an entrepreneurial inclination make it the most industrialised Indian state, accounting for nearly a quarter of the country’s industrial output. Mumbai, the port capital of Maharashtra, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan metropolis, as well as the country’s commercial capital, generating around 50% of the national foreign exchange earnings.

Maharashtra has an enviable cultural heritage with folk arts, literature, fine arts and performing arts tracing their history back to ancient times and artistes are greatly respected, enjoying cult status. The history of the land is replete with stories of great battles, legendary warriors, poets, writers and literary heroes; an inherent resistance to domination, good business sense and great artistic sensibilities characterizes its people.
