These clothes were often expensive and made to look affluent.

Shivaji Maharaj

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

The Bhavani Talwar that Changed India

Story Of Maharashtra’s hero

In every Maharashtrians’ heart, the mention of the Shivaji Maharaj sparks a flame. He was one of the earliest freedom fighters in India’s history. He didn’t fight against the European powers but showed his discontent to the foreign Mughals

The best part in Indian history that I love, is this phase of Shivaji and the rise of Swarajya (Independence).

He became the King that other Kingdoms feared. All this in a span of three decades in the 17th Century AD.

Shivaji Maharaj didn’t have a lot of treasury. The strength of this army was tiny compared to his rivals and his kingdom was also small.

With these little resources at is disposal, he managed to horrify those who threatened and harmed his subjects. This made him an immediate favourite amongst his people.

Khidrapur: The Pillar Temple

Khidrapur: The Pillar Temple

This temple is located on the Maharashtra and Karnataka border and is carved out of one rock

Khidrapur is a small village located at the edge of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Looking at the village it is hard to believe that it houses such a wonderful piece of art.

Getting to Khidrapur is a long drive through unsteady roads. The journey though is worth it. The road takes you through unending fields.

The fields are so endless as though it were a carpet of green rolled out on the brownish-black soil. Read more about Khidrapur: The Pillar Temple
