Sprawling on the basin of River Panchganga, the city of Kolhapur serves as a home to the temple of Hindu goddess Mahalakshmi. The city is famed for its specialisation in Kolhapuri Chappal, delectable gur or jaggery, mouthwatering cuisine and much more.
Rendering to the Hindu myth, the city got its name after the demon Kolhasura, who was slayed by the Goddess Mahalakshmi to salvage people from his atrocities. However, the demon's last wish to the goddess was to name the town after him, which was duly honored. Often touted as the lesser visited city in Maharashtra's otherwise bubbling hill stations and tourist destinations. Kolhapur serves as the halt-point for visiting other places in the region. Nestled peacefully in the lap of the Sahyadri Hills, Kolhapur is popularly known as the "city of palaces and gardens".

This historic city is now an important industrial hub with the production of specialised textile products and artifacts. Kolhapur is renowned for its footwear, jewellery, art and education. Kolhapuri saaz is a specialised ornament made in this place. The city is also home to the Marathi film industry. Panhala Fort, Mahalakshmi Temple, Rankala Lake and the Town Hall Museum are some of the must-visit places in the city. The area around Mahalakshmi Temple retains its old world charm. The Old Palace is a traffic-free zone and be accessed by a monumental gateway. The best time to visit Kolhapur is in August, when the city plays host to the Hindu festival of Naag Panchami. The celebrations are organised in tandem with the ones held in Pune. Ganesh Chaturthi and Navratri are also celebrated with much fanfare and fervour here. When visiting Kohlapur, do take out time for neighbouring places of Mumbai, Pune and Goa.
