When it comes to UNESCO world heritage Sites, Maharashtra actually has the largest number of sites in the entire country. From 2nd century BC onward architectural marvels at Ajanta and Ellora Caves, to the iconic CST (previously Victoria Terminus) in Mumbai, Maharashtra has it all. Not to mention Maharashtra’s very own valley of flowers at Kaas, the state indeed has much to explore and see.
I have been living in the state for a few years now and have been to all the sites, except the Elephanta caves near Mumbai, which is quite a shame. Having explored all the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Gujarat, I hope to finish them all in Maharashtra as well this summer.
So are you tempted to explore these wonders of Maharashtra? Here’s a travel guide to help you do just that!
