Kolhapur and around: A Photo Blog

Kolhapur, which is southern Maharashtra’s important city. Rich in history, famous for fertile soil, rivers, sugarcane, and other agricultural produce such as jaggery and hence rich, super-rich farmers! Kolhapur is also wrestlers’ mecca. I know one of acquaintance, in fact a landlord’s son, had gone to Kolhapur for seeking training wrestling. It is on the north-south line of Sahyadri mountains, hence rugged terrain, very beautiful in monsoon. One cannot miss this important town on National Highway 4, which is door to southern India. The language is of course Marathi, but dialect which is again rugged, influenced by Kannada, from neighboring state. The city is also famous for hot spicy food such as Pandhara Rassa, Tambada Rassa, and misal too. Today I present a photo feature of this city, which consists of photos snapped during my various trips to the city. Enjoy!
