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.

    Yamini's 4 days trip to Maharashtra

    Everything is well and good but the agents were calling repeatedly without knowing whether the other person can respond or not at that moment. I got exhausted with those calls. It would be easy for us if you ask for the time when you can contact in the form itself while asking for the details of the trip.

    Akash Patel

    Mumbai

    Akash's 3 days trip to Maharashtra

    Let's go point-wise w.r.t the feedback: 1. The hotel, being a 3-star, did not met with the standards expected. I didn't expected a 3-star with a lavish ambience, decorated rooms, top-quality room service, etc. My expectation was a simple but full-fledged service. The hotel didn't know about my package booking as a result, they rose questions about free breakfast. Each time I had to clarify my self about the utilities included in the package and made me angry at point of time. Don't worry, I didn't shout on any employees of the hotel. 2. As this was my first honeymoon tour, the room decoration on valentine's day was very shabby. When I reached to my hotel room at night, all the balloons had fallen from the ceiling and adjacent walls. I and my wife made efforts to fix it. 3. The cake selection by the hotel service was very cheap. It was valentine's day and my first honeymoon tour, and those guys handed the black forest birthday cake with no garnishing on it. The waiter handed the cake with the matchbox and when I asked the reception to provide some candles, he said, "Sorry sir, that's not in your package". Candles? Package? seriously? I was like, what's the meaning of matchbox then? 4. The reason why I'd choose you is to strictly compare the cost of the tour, in person. If I draw a chart of personally-guided tour Vs third-party scheduled tour, the expenses that indulge shows major deviation. Of course, the package you'd pitched contains your margin but up to 50% was not expected. 5. Too much of your miscommunications with me and with the hotel staff. Some good experiences: 1. The driver was punctual, well mannered and informative with the places we visited. Respect for him. 2. Pro-activeness of our employees won my heart. As a conclusion, I would now think twice before approaching you. First, I'd thought of my Mom and Dad's wedding anniversary plan with you but now I am off the track.
