"A spiritual and gastronomical getaway."

  • Posted Oct 24, 2017
Went for a 4 days trip to Kolhapur with my family. Hailing from a purely non-vegetarian household, we enjoyed the delicious mutton and very popular tambda rassa, pandhra rassa at a variety of restaurants. My husband being a missal pav lover, gorged on the very popular Phadtare Missal and Khabaug Missal. Well, mothers always seek for blessing for a happy household, which made our visits to the Mahalaxmi temple and Jyotiba a great success, considering we timed it to perfection with Laxmi Pujan during Diwali. With a happy stomach, a happy heart and even happier soul, we returned back to Mumbai.

"Shoppers paradise foodies delight"

  • 7.0/7

Kolhapur known for its Mahalakshmi temple also is a shoppers paradise. From the much famed chappals to Kolhapuri Jwellery Or the spicy dishes -veg and non veg, Kolhapur never disappoints visitors.
For the devout the temple visit is blissful. Don't forget to have the lunch Prasadam for which tokens are given while exiting the temple. Those performing a seva will be served lunch besides the Prasad counter itself. Abhishek is performed thrice daily and has to be booked a day in advance. Devotees can select the choice of timing for the Abhishek
The bylanes leading to Kolhapur temple have everything from jwellery stores to sweet &snack shops selling missal Pav and bhadang.
There are restaurants and eat outs not to forget the street side vendors and kiosks all across the city offering varied cuisine.

I went along with my husband to Kolhapur. We stayed at hotel hill top panhala. It's a very good clean hotel. Rooms are big enough, reception, food everything is very good. We saw variety of hibiscus flowers there which was soothing to the eyes. Tabak udyan, sajna kothi, teen darwaza all are at walking distance from the hotel. Next day we went to ambabai temple. Then we went to narsoba chi vadi. It's a Datta Mandir. One should not miss basundi and kavatha chi Barfi here. Our last stop was beautiful aancient khidrapur Shiv temple. One must visit this place.

"Great Trip"

  • 7.0/7

There are lot of good places to see in the city of Kolhapur.

These places you can enjoy with your friends and family.

Travelling from October to February month is suitable per the climate.

Nice places. There are few religious temples to visit in the city which are located near to beautiful nature, river. These people are very much crazy about food therefore you will get a lot of good variety of food in the city. If you are a Non-Veg lover there is treat for you in lot of variety. Specialty of the Kolhapur is "PANDHRA RASSA" means (White Soup/Gravy) & "TAMBDA RASSA" (Red Soup/Gravy). Panhala fort is one of the ancient epic fort of the maratha emperor Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj which is maintained little bit well so as to explore it neatly.
