Maharashtra is a huge state (India’s third largest and second most populous). Its state capital Mumbai (Bombay) is India’s commercial centre and has a major hub airport.
Some of the world’s earliest frescoes and carvings can be found at the caves of Ajanta and Ellora. India’s first railway line started in Mumbai and Victoria Terminus (now called Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus or CST) is a magnificent example of Victorian Gothic architecture.
