Shegaon & Anand Sagar, Maharastra: Part 1

                                                  (Map of Maharashtra showing Shegaon)

Maharastra or Maha-Rastra (meaning A Huge Nation in it's own) is the second most populous state after Uttar Pradesh and third largest state by area in India. The capital of this huge state is Mumbai, the pulse of India. Maharashtra is a land whose sheer size and diversity will stun you. Enjoy her mountains that stretch out into the mists as far as the eye can see. Her innumerous forts that stand proud and strong. Her scores of temples, sculpted into and out of basalt rock.

Her diverse and colourful cultures, woven into one gigantic quilt. Her festivals that galvanise the sleepy thousands into fervent motion. And her miles of silver, white beaches, stretched taut and inviting over the entire coast.

Apart from it's huge cities, Maharashtra has some amazing rural places to visit. These places are situated in the interiors of the state, but well connected to the cities. The real gem of Maharashtra is in it's interior places. Shegaon is a town located in the Buldhana District of the state. Shegaon in my opinion is one of the most peaceful places in the country. Words can't describe the beauty of this place. The birth place of Gajanan Maharaj (A holy saint). Welcome to Shegaon
