Ratnagiri, Maharashtra

Been there recently?

This district headquarters on the Konkan coast known for its very own brand of the king of fruits Mango, named ‘Ratnagiri Hapus’, is a fantastic tourist place for all seasons. The mix of heritage, adventure, divinity, history, and nature is too inviting to ignore for anyone looking for a good getaway. The fascinating countryside of Ratnagiri is a marvellous place to venture into. The town has left a rich legacy in the freedom struggle of India and the history of the place makes up an invigorating narrative for history buffs. The city was once considered an isolated place because of the unscalable natural barriers surrounding it and it is for this very reason the areas of the district bordering Kolhapur and Pune districts are sought-after destinations for nature lovers. It is a heady mix of tourism elements that makes Ratnagiri stand apart. Ratnagiri is located about 320 kilometres from Mumbai, capital of Maharashtra state and is well connected by rail route and by air as well.
