Satara Tourism

Located in Western Maharashtra, Satara is one of the historical cities of the state and the headquarters of Satara district. The city gets its name from the seven (Saat) hills (Tara) that envelope Satara. This historic site of Maratha Kingdom is located near the confluence of Krishna and its tributary Venna. 

Satara was established in the 16th century and had the honour of being the seat of Chatrapati Shahu, Raja of Satara. It was conquered by Shivaji once in 1663 and after his death, his half-brother, Sambhaji was made the king until the release of Shahu, Shivaji’s son from the Mughals. Chhatrapati Shahu was crowned in 1708 at the Satara fort, and Chhatrapati Shivaji’s descendants continued to live in Satara till date.

The major attractions in Satara are Ajinkyatara fort, and a statue Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj standing near a canon (as opposed to generally seen statue of him riding a horse). Located at about 130 km from Pune, and 270 km from Mumbai, Satara is a great weekend getaway option. As a bonus to a trip to Satara, Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani and Kaas Plateau are situated in the vicinity of just 50 km. Do relish some Kandhi Pedha when you happen to be in Satara.
