Badlapur is a city in Thane district, Maharashtra state, India. It is a part of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. Due to population growth in nearby cities, people working in Mumbai have been moving to Badlapur for a number of socio-economic reasons, including close proximity to Mumbai via rail. Badlapur city encompasses the old villages of Badlapur, Kulgaon, Manjarli, Belavali, Katrap, and many other small villages.HistoryBadlapur was named for being a remount depot on a travel route through the rugged Konkan region to Gujarat via Surat. The town was famous for its splendid horses. Warriors (e.g. Shivajiraje Bhonsale) changed their horses at the town in anticipation of the difficult climb through the Konkan. The word "change" (badla in Marathi) was applied to the town. "Badlapur" is derived from "badla" plus "pur", which means village or town.In 1971, Badlapur was recognised as a municipal town in Ulhasnagar tehsil.The city has seen massive growth since the 1980s, with a rapid increase in population, due in part its proximity to Mumbai by rail. Consequently, the area around the Badlapur railway station has developed faster than old Badlapur village itself.GeographyBadlapur has an average elevation of 44m. The region surrounding Badlapur is mountainous. The Ulhas River flows between Badlapur and Kulgaon. Floods frequently occur due to Badlapur's geographical location near this mountain runoff. Badlapur and Kulgaon are connected by two bridges over the river. The city is virtually divided into two areas, "East" and "West", by the railway.
