Famous Historical Places in Maharashtra

The forts and palaces in Maharashtra are reminiscent of the Maratha reign in the state in the sixteenth century. These historical places in Maharashtra tell the story of the rise and fall of the Maratha empire. The Marathas rose to prominence when Chhatrapati Shivaji, the founder of the empire, defeated the Sultan of Bijapur and established Hindu rule in the state. The word ‘Chhatrapati’ means sovereign. Shivaji reigned over Maharashtra until his son took over. Sambhaji did not share his father’s fate, and was captured by Aurangez and executed. The lush forests and mountains in the Western Ghats helped Marathas defend themselves against the invaders. There are several famous historical places in Maharashtra that stand testimony to the bravery and resilience of the Maratha kings. The Marathas built a number of forts and citadels in Maharashtra to protect themselves from invaders.

Ajanta and Ellora Caves: The paintings and sculptures inside this cave and the carvings inscribed on its walls tells a story of the times gone by. The rock-cut caves tops our historical places in Maharashtra list. They are thronged by foreign travelers in huge numbers. The best time to visit this attraction is during winters.

Gateway of India: Overlooking the Arabian Sea, this imposing structure is a syncretic blend of Western, Arabic and Indian influences. One of the best historical places in Maharashtra state, it was built in 1924 by George Wittet, one of the most famous British architects, to celebrate the King’s visit to Maharashtra. King George was accompanied by Queen Mary on this trip.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus: It is one of the most prominent places of historical importance in Maharashtra. Formerly known as Victoria Terminus, this building from 1878 is an excellent proponent of Victorian-Gothic style of architecture in this state. It was listed as a World Heritage site in the year 1997.

Raigad Fort: Reaching a height of 820 metres, this fort is reminiscent of the reign of Marathas in Maharashtra. Perched on the mountains of Sahyadri, the fort stands as a testimony for the vision of Chatrapati Shivaji. It documents the valor of the Marathas beautifully. It is one of the most ancient historical places in Maharashtra.

Jaigad Fort: Also known as the Fort of Victory, it overlooks the area where River Shastri mixes into the Arabian Sea. The imposing structure is a sight to behold. The fort is situated on top of a cliff in Ratnagiri, a coastal region in Maharashtra. It is one of the most famous historical places in Maharashtra. There is a lighthouse near the fort that you should definitely pay a visit to.

These places of historical importance in Maharashtra deserve a place in our history books. It is important to preserve these attractions to keep our rich heritage and history intact.

    Our excursion to Ajanta & Ellora caves was worth it. We visited other places like Mini Taj Mahal, Ghrishneshwar Jyotirlinga Temple, Aurangabad Caves. The agent was very kind and helpful. The hotels provided were also decent. I'd rate it 8/10
