Satara in Maharashtra was established in the 16th century near the confluence of the river Krishna and river Venna. The place retains its simplicity even today. Holi, Ganesh Chaturthi, Dussehra, and Diwali are some of the major festivals celebrated by the locals with great pomp.
One must visit the Kaas Lake, the enthralling Koyna Dam, and the amazing Ajinkyatara Fort. Do not forget to take your camera along because Savitri Point – a vantage point – gives the most spectacular view of the city.
The food here is generally spicy and jaggery or gud is abundantly used in cooking instead of sugar. One of the Satara famous sweets include kandi pedhe, a round smooth-textured sweet that comes in plain and kesar flavours. There is also gulkand halwa to tantalise your taste buds.
The city also houses some of the best personal-care products such as organic soaps, face washes, and lotions. Salebhai gives you a glimpse into the city and its specialities. Come, take your pick now.
