Maharashtra

4.3
Packed with some of India's top attractions, Maharashtra stretches from the country's western coast to its central section, encompassing equally varied landscapes and climates. Home to the most industrialized region in India, this sprawling state also boasts thriving agricultural and tourism sectors. Begin your tour of Maharashtra in Mumbai, India's commercial capital and hub of the successful Bollywood film and TV industries. Beyond this immense, cosmopolitan city, you can explore Buddhist caves, ancient temple complexes, modern beach resorts, national parks, and pleasant hill stations that the European colonists used as summer retreats. Before you visit India, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
