A Trip to Thane

I had been to Thane by train in the month of March 2016. Thane is an important stop-over in the tourism circuit of Maharashtra. The must-visit places around Thane include Tansa Lake, Essel World, Bassein fort and Upvan Lake. The Tansa Lake is in close proximity to the Tansa Wildlife Sanctuary. The Lake has a storage capacity of 3 million gallons of water and is a major source of supply of drinking water to Mumbai city. The Mahuli Fort is a must-visit for architecture buffs. The Essel world is an extremely popular amusement park located in Thane District. The Bassein Fort is now called as Vasai Fort and is an old Portuguese settlement. The Upvan Lake is one among the 23 lakes found in this region. It is very popular among couples with the Yeoor hills located on one side of this pristine natural wonder.

A beautiful and peaceful city

Thane is a beautiful district situated in between Western Coast and Sahyadri hill range of Maharashtra and part of Konkan division, besides many natural diversities it is a famous Industrial area and housing many large, medium and small scale industries. It has many suburban areas, which are no less than a city like Navi Mumbai, Ulhas Nagar, Murbad, Bhiwandi, Kalyan etc. This city is bounded by Arabian Sea in the West, North is bounded by Palgarh, East by Pune and Ahmadnagar and Mumbai and it's suburbans are the southwest boundaries and Raigadh is in the South.
Thane is having many proofs of its antiquity as mentioned by Friar Jordanus, Ibn Battuta, Abul Feda and Duarte Barbosa all notable travellers mentioned the existence of Thane. It was ruled by Arikesara and Chimmajji Appa during 10th and 11th centuries as Kopineshwar Temple and Ambarnath Shiva Temple are the edifices of their ruling or presence. It was also ruled by Arab Sultanate and other Muslim rulers and later it was ruled by Peshwas or Marathas. In 1817 it has gone into the hands of Britishers from Portuguese. It was famous for Tanasi a special cloth which is referred by Duarte Barbosa and he called Thane as Tana Mayambu. Its port was used for foreign trade especially from the Gulf and Persia.

It is having an area about 150 sq kilometres and densely populated. Corporation is able to maintain it well and sufficient facilities are provided to the residents. A nice infrastructure is set up and still many works are under progress. It was the city which has the first passenger train in Asia and a Terminus. As Metro rail is also to be commissioned soon.  
It has a very good connectivity to every part of the Mumbai by rail and roads as Lifeline plays a vital role. It is also connected to almost every corner of the Nation by Rail and Roads. It is having very good Air connectivity through Chhattarpati Shivaji Airport which is the most busiest International airport. For visitors Taxis are available at reasonable rates.
One side is the Arabian Sea and other side the Sahyadri hill range. So western area is humid and warm and areas situated on the slopes of Sahyadri hill range is much better. Generally all the four seasons are witnessed here. December to January a mild winter and March to June is the summer, though the Monsoons are just two one is the regular and other is post monsoon.
Two main rivers are flowing through the district which are Ulhas and Vaitarna; both are having numbers of tributaries. Bhiwandi creek is the largest and their are many small creeks like Chinchani, Dahanu and Thane creek, indeed is the tardiness of flooded sea which has become a nest for the local and migratory birds.

Locals are very co-operative and helping. They love sports and deep interest in the cultural activities as literacy rate is much better. Allwyn Education Group, Pinnacle Institute of Education, Swami Vivekanand College, Education Institute Thane etc are renowned institutes. Thane have produced many iconic personalities who have contributed lot in the uplift of Thane. Thane is quite green and clean, law and order is very effective. People of Thane are quite health conscious as many parks and play grounds remain crowd by walkers, joggers and sportsmen and the lakes are also the first choice.

Affordable Yet Adorable

We went to the place in a group for holidaying on a weekend. The place is quite huge but the conveyance or mode of public transport is not that good.It's almost mandatory to have a personal vehicle.The autowallahs are there to fool you so if you are going by an auto confirm the price before starting the journey to something around 350 Rs .

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Please make sure that you have bought all your drinks and stuff before arriving in asangaon as u wont get much option except some third class beer shoppe with a less number of options to choose from.If u are a non-veggie this place is a strict NO-NO for you.Else make arrangements with the locals for some non veg food if possible although its quite tough to find one. The rooms are quite ok nothing much to add to it.

Activities & things to do: The activities to do are quite good u have a number of options. One Must-do thing at this place is boating. Although the boats are not in good shape its still a great fun. There is a natural waterfall which is quite excellent .There is also this artificial waterfall and Rain Dance which are quite good. The food is like gujarati food much of the items being sweet but its good for a change.All and All the place is quite good and you wont get bored

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Most preferably have a private vehicle else take an auto from asangaon station.5-6 persons can travel in one auto at the cost of rs 350 one way.
negotiate though.
