Covering a large part of the Deccan Plateau, the state of Maharashtra is partially hilly. Centuries ago, these hills and crags provided excellent ground for the highly perfected guerilla warfare techniques of the Marathas like Shivaji against the Mughals.

Influences of various schools and different ages can be seen in the monuments and sculptures of Maharashtra. The caves of Aurangabad, Ajanta and Ellora contain some beautiful rock-hewn sculptures, columns and frescoes hard to find anywhere else.

The Matheran
Toy Train Nestling about 800 m above sea level, Matheran (meaning jungle head) is the nearest hill resort to Mumbai - just about 2 hours away on a Pune-bound train. As the little narrow guage train (which was introduced in 1907) wheezes up the Western Ghats into the clear mountain air, you get a breathtaking view of the hills and plains below. The train runs only between sunrise and sunset, and is discontinued from mid - June to end September, during the monsoons. Neral, which is the starting point of the journey up, is easily accessible by Mumbai's local trains.

Area: 307,690 sq. km
Population: 78.9 million
Capital: Mumbai
Main Language: Marathi
Best time to visit: September to April (coast) & September to mid-June (hills)
