Located in the southwestern region of Maharashtra, on the banks of River Panchaganga, lies the historical city of Kolhapur. The presence of numerous religious centers like Mahalakshmi Temple which is known for its ancient architectural style, Jyotiba Temple, Katyani Temple, Binkhambi Ganesh Mandir, Kopeshwara Temple, BhawaniTemple and Gagangiri Maharaj Math, some of them found dotting the holy river, has given the name ‘dakshinkashi’ to this city. Other than the religious presence, the city houses several forts and other historical places. Some of the major places to visit in this well-connected town are the Maharaja’s palace also known as the New palace, Shahji Chatrapati museum, Vishalgad Fort, Irwin Agricultural Museum, Radhanagari Dam, Wax museum and Bhavani Mandap, the oldest and biggest structure in Kolhapur also known as ‘glory of the city’. And who can forget about the popular and uniquely designed Kolhapuri chappals that are exported to all over the world.
Madgaon is the capital of Salcete region in Goa. Locally known as Margao, Madgaon is situated along the coast. One of the oldest towns in Goa, Madgaon is located on the banks of the Sal River. Before the Portuguese invasion, Madgaon was home to numerous temples and Hindu Mathas belonging to the Vaishnava sects and was known as Mathagram. There are a number of churches in Madgaon; a few of the famous churches are the Holy Spirit Church, the Grace Church, the St Sebastian Church and the Monte Hill Chapel. Even though the population is predominantly Roman Catholic, there are many temples of which the Damodar Temple, the Hari Temple, the Maruti Temple, the Saibaba Temple, and the Shivaling Temple are popular. Christmas is celebrated with great fervor and a large fair is held to celebrate the occasion of the Feast of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in December.
Bus broke down midway, minivan came to pickup after 2hrs. That minivan too dropped us at Panjim instead of Madgaon at midnight. We had to book private cab who charged Rs.1,200.
The bus went down twice in the journey, delaying by 4hrs. Very disappointed in Neeta Tours and Travels.
