Sajan Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: Adventure
  • District: Thane
Sajan, also known as Saajan, is situated at a distance of around 135 km from Mumbai. The destination is located in Thane District of Maharashtra. The region is surrounded by dense forests of mango and chikoo plantations.

Sajan is mentioned in the ancient writings of Ptolemy, as Chersonesus. One of the chief historic testimonies of the region is Kohoj Fort, which belongs to the Bhoj period. The region was known as Tana Mayambu during the advent of the Portuguese in 1530. It was also ruled by Muslim invaders from 1300 to 1660, Marathas from 1660 to 1800 and the British thereafter.

Over the years, the town has emerged as a major weekend getaway location from Mumbai. The quaint town has beautiful surroundings and religious centres, which is inhabited mainly by the Marathi community. The tradition of Maharashtra is reflected in the food and hospitality along with cultural events such as Warli Painting Demonstrations and Tarpa Dance. The location has limited tourist attractions, but a peaceful ambience along with recreational opportunities attracts nature lovers.

There are numerous brick kilns in the adjacent regions of the town, which draw attention of tourists. Besides, the region is a habitat of over 500 floral species with contrasting varieties of trees, shrubs and plants. Moho-Khurd reservoir on the Moho River and the waterfall of Palusa are among the chief picnic spots in the region.

Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport of Mumbai is the closest airbase to the town, which has connections with the rest of the world. Besides, the railhead of Thane is the closest railway junction to Sajan, which is connected with Mumbai.

Sajan experiences hot summers, whereas winters spanning between November and February have pleasant climatic conditions and are the best time to visit Sajan.

Good for activities and spend an adventurous weekend.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Nothing around !!! food at resort is strictly OK, better carry something to eat if you are particular about your diet ...

Activities & things to do: various like rappelling , river crossing, rock climbing, trekking , etc

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: About 100 kms from mumbai , on western express highway take a right from manor naka, travel to wada and take a right turn. road is a little bad here ... after about 12 kms you get signs for direction to the resort.
