Begin exploring the city with a visit to the Palace and the Sahahji Chhatrapati Museum. The museum has a fascinating collection of memorabilia from the past. War weapons that once wreaked havoc on the unfortunate wildlife that crossed paths with the Maharaja are all displayed here. Kushti (wrestling) is something that can be witnessed at the Motibag Taleem, a remnant of the glorious Maratha traditions. These strong “pehelwans” practice the ancient Indian art of wrestling and can invoke fear in even the bravest of us all. One has not truly experienced Kolhapur without tasting their cuisine! This includes the Kolhapuri Lavangi and Kolhapuri masala. Head to Hotel Surabhi, next to the bus stand, to truly experience authentic Kolhapuri food, such as the mouth-watering missal. Not only are the kolhapuri slippers worth buying here, but also the cotton textiles! Kolhapuri sarees are quite well-known and worth checking out. You can also check out the jewellery here – the Kolhapur saaj that many Maharashtrian women adorn themselves with is from this city. You can find all these and more on the Mahadwar, Bhausinji and Shivaji Roads in Kolhapur. So whenever you decide to make a pitstop in Kolhapur, make yourself at home in a Treebo hotel!
