“True Inerior Maharashtra's Splendid Beauty”
Reviewed 9 November 2008

I just returned from kolhapur (Maharashtra) and believe me it was a one of a lifetime experience of HISTORY, NATURAL BEAUTY AND RELIGION combined.

1. The Mahalakshmi Temple ( GODDESS OF WEALTH ) and peace is the most holiest of all the other LAKSHMI TEMLES OF INDIA. The renouned MAHALAKSHMI TEMPLE OF KOLHAPUR.

2. SAHU MAHARAJ'S PALACE where a number of hindi and Marathi movies have been shot given to the fact that Kolhapur is the Mecca for the Marathi films industry.
The palace has gardens surrounding where one can see Deers and neel gais , Sambhars and peacocks and actually get very close to them and feed them too. I got my fotos with the beautiful DEERS.
Inside the palace is artefacts dating back to nearly 200 years with animal skins indian and african ( lions, tigers , birds, and other animals.) also weapons used in those days and photos of generals and those times of elephant taming and fighting and hunting. Beautiful Panitings fill the palace with old and royal furniture which are worth maybe crores of rupees. A must see for all ages. HISTORY.

3. Not very far about 20 km ie, 30 mins drive from Kolhapur is the Hill station Named PANHALA once a GREAT SHIVAJI MAHARAJS FORT where SHIVAJI MAHARAJ STAYED WITH HIS SON SAMBHAJI is of great importance from the point of view of HISTORY OF INDIA.

4. THE WRESTLING CRAZE IN KOHLAPUR STILL REMINDS OF THE OLD TIMES AND THE VALOUR OF THE MEN WHO FOUGHT NUMEROUS BATTLES
