People and Culture in Maharashtra

To know more about Maharashtra, one should also try to understand the people here as well as the culture they follow. The Indian state of Maharashtra ranks second when the world’s most populous subnational entities are considered. Since the population is huge here, the cultural dynamics here are naturally prominent. Officially, the language spoken by the people of Maharashtra is Marathi and the dialect seems to be varying from one region to another. However, there’s a lot of influence from the neighboring states. You can even find that there are people who speak other languages like Kannada, Konkani, and Gujarati in some of the regions. One of the biggest reasons of the development of Maharashtra state tourism is its culture only. The people are quite welcoming and it is not difficult to break the ice with them.

Historical Significance of Maharashtra

This Indian state was under the rule of the Maurya Empire and this scenario takes you back to the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C.E. However, in 230 BCE, the state of Maharashtra was ruled under the Satavahana dynasty and this phase didn’t end before 400 years. After that, there were many empires and dynasties under which the state was ruled. The British Empire ruled the wester region of Maharashtra, which they considered as the Bombay Presidency. This presidency constituted the divisions of Nashik, Pune, and Konkan.

Festivals in Maharashtra:

Ganesh Chaturthi: Ganesha Chaturthi is one of the most popular festivals in Maharashtra which is celebrated by all the people including Bollywood celebrities with great pomp and show. People bring home eco-friendly Ganesha for around 9 days and then go for visarjan with great excitement. Tourism in Maharashtra makes great arrangements so that the tourists can also participate in this festival.

Nag Panchmi: This festival is celebrated on the 5th day of the holy month of Shravan when people offer prayers to Shesha Nag, known as the snake God. People on this day offer sweets and milk to snake and offer prayers to them. It is an important festival in Maharashtra.

Famous Food of Maharashtra

Bhel Puri: One of the famous foods in Maharashtra which is now popular even in northern India is bhel puri. The rice puffs sprinkled with tamarind chutney and vegetables makes for the perfect light snack. Bhelpuri can be seen at every street in Mumbai and also at the beaches and Chowpatty.

Vada Pav: Another popular dish in Maharashtra which is not only cheap but also tasty vada pav. People, rich or poor can be seen eating vada pav on the streets of Maharashtra. It is bread bun, inside which deep-fried potato is placed along with chutney topping.

Pav Bhaji: Pav Bhaji is another dish which is famous throughout Maharashtra. A mix of all the veggies served with bread called pav is so tempting that will make your lure for more and more. It is often served with onions and butter on the top.

Your trip to Maharashtra is surely going to be a memorable experience, enriched with historical, cultural, and social aspects of this Indian state. Make sure you cover all the famous attractions of this place in order to make it a productive as well as a comprehensively amazing travel experience.

    Tarun Solanki

    Ahmedabad

    Tarun's 3 days trip to Maharashtra

    Our recent vacation planned through TravelTriangle had its highs and lows, with Agent Gaurav Sharma shining bright amidst some disappointments. Firstly, let me highlight the commendable service provided by Gaurav Sharma. He meticulously organized our trip to Lonavala, Khandal, Panchgani, and Mahaba
    leshwar, ensuring our preferences were met and our journey smooth. Gaurav's dedication to customer satisfaction was evident through his regular follow-ups and genuine concern for our well-being throughout the trip. However, our experience with the hotel in Lonavala, Aureole Mrida - A Boutique Hotel, was far from satisfactory. The initial room assigned to us was plagued with issues – from a leaking washbasin to an overall foul odor. Gaurav promptly intervened, helping us relocate to a better room. Yet, the disappointment persisted as the breakfast served the next morning was below par, with stale breads being served, much to our dismay. The unapproachable and indifferent attitude of the hotel staff further added to our dissatisfaction. I strongly advise against choosing this hotel, and I hope TravelTriangle takes note of this feedback seriously. Thankfully, our experience improved drastically upon reaching Panchgani. The Blizzard Resort not only offered a beautiful setting but also boasted a team of helpful and cooperative staff. From delicious food to impeccable hygiene standards, every aspect of our stay was delightful. Special mention to Prashant and Abhishek, who went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. The opportunity to pluck strawberries from the nearby farm added an extra charm to our stay. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. In conclusion, while our journey with TravelTriangle was marked by highs and lows, Gaurav Sharma's exceptional service and the delightful experience at Blizzard Resort salvaged our vacation. However, attention must be paid to addressing the shortcomings encountered, particularly with hotel selections, to ensure a consistently satisfying experience for travelers.

    Anju Agarwal

    Pune

    Anju's 5 days trip to Maharashtra

    Good things: 1.) The good part for this booking was the co-ordination and customization provided by Himani madam. Very polite behaviour and hear out customer s very well. 2.) Itineary desinged according to requirements so able to cover the whole itineary. Average things: 1.) Trip was booked well in
    advanced, but driver and cab details were not even shared 10 hours before start of trip. We clearly told at time of advanced booking that New model of Innova is required, but at the very end moment they provide very old model of Innova which was not comfortable, basic radio/FM was not working. 2.) Driver behavior was un-friendly. He was not at all aware of our route and itineary. We guided him the whole journey through Google location on our phone. Good part somehow, we were able to cover full itineary. 3.) Hotels for Pune, Aurangabad and Ahmednagar were very good but in the end the hotel boooked at Nashik provided the worst experince. Basic facility provided in room were not working but anyways with good support provided by Himani madam, things got managed.

    Nirmeetpadhy's 7 days trip to Maharashtra

    This is my 6th trip with travel triangle and by far the worst trip ever. The cab and the driver were too old to ride. The hotels were good in shirdi and aurangabad, but the worst hotel I have ever experienced in lonavala and mumbai. The cab was very annoyingly calling the driver repeatedly 5 to 7 ti
    mes a day asking him to take shortcuts in the lonely roads at the night time, which is not at all safe for a family ride. I would request you, don't ever give such bad experience in a family trip.

    Pravingharat's 4 days trip to Maharashtra

    My first experience with Travel Triangle was Very Good. But not this time. In a 3 night stay tour at Malvan for10 adults, the overall experience was Good. Hotel was neat and Clean. The cabs were also good. Overall services were satisfactory. The Trips Squaree representative (booking agent) cheated
    us. The Hotel costs were charged including breakfast (the rates on hotel site were Rs.3000/- without breakfast and Rs.3600/- with Breakfast), but during the trip, no breakfast was provided, we had to spend extra money for breakfast. The total package was for Rs.92,000/- . The cost of stay works around Rs.45,000/- for 3 nights x 5 rooms. Local site seeing was only for 2 days. First and last day only pickup and drop. No site seeing. Thus Rs.47,000/- for 2 cabs ? Seems to be cheating. I can understand charging fees for the services provided, but not to this extent. Please also note that I was asked to pay some money to the representative's personal account, where as the balance was paid to another account. With this type of experience, I can not recommend Travel Triangle to my friends and family. SORRY.

    Tjhollingsworth's 2 days trip to Maharashtra

    I did a 2 day Aurangabad trip with this group and it went off without a hitch. Pretty long distances from Aurangabad to Ajanta Caves, like 2 hours and then the return. Road wasn’t great but the driver handled it fine. I’d recommend these guys, but if you get the same driver I had, hopefullly he
    learns more English. We were able to communicate but it was real difficult. Also, word to the wise… Make sure you have some kind of cell service all the time there. The driver and I communicated via txting when I needed picked up and it was challenging as I had no cell service from my provider. If I was to do it again, I’d have purchased a SIM card for my entire time in India. Otherwise, I’d definitely recommend this outfit.
