Karad Tourism & Travel Guide

This is a city in the District of Satara and is known as the "Sugar Bowl of Maharashtra". This is mainly because this place is where most of the sugar production of the state takes place and there are also a number of sugar mills in this city. Apart from that, another reason for this being a tourist attraction is the Prreti Sangam or the Confluence of Love. This is the point where the Rivers Koyna and Krishna meet head on. The rivers originate from Ratnagiri and then diverge to meet again out here to form the letter 'T' accurately. There are also many premiere educational institutions in this city making it even more important. these include the Government College of Engineering and the Government College of Pharmacy.

Top Places To Visit in Karad 6 Spots

Pantacha Kot, Somwar Peth, Karad, Maharashtra 415110, India
15 mins of exploration and 10 mins of rest, we started our walk back towards the base. After a long and tiring walk of Sadashivgad, all group members were hungry, so we decided to head back to Karad city. When we were moving towards Karad city, one of our group member saw his friend's FB post about 'Pantacha Kot' in Karad. It was a huge well/water tank carved in a huge rock and had beautiful steps going right till the bottom. We requested hunger to wait for sometime as the place seem to be beautiful. For 'Pantacha Kot', you need to come in Karad City and head towards Pritisangam (confluence of Krishna and Koyna river). Just before main gate of Pritisangam, there is a sharp left going upwards. You can find this place on google maps or after coming near to PritiSangam, you can ask local people for directions. Pantacha Kot is an architectural beauty built during Peshwa regime, which is in center of Karad city with all residential societies and bungalows surrounding it. After our tour, I asked some of my friends who are locals of Karad, they didn't knew about the place and were suprised to see such beauty in their city. The place is well maintained and secured by archaeological department, as it was sunday we found the place locked. By asking nearby, we came to know that there is watchman who has the key, but as it was Sunday he must be on leave. We could see the architectural marvel from the gate, but were unhappy as we can't go inside. To Give Up is not a quality of trekker, we went to nearby building and some of our group members jumped over the fence to go inside, which was bit risky. Meanwhile to our surprise, few young guys came on bike and they opened the gate. So the remaining group members, came inside from the gate and next 30 mins our eyes kept admiring the beauty of the place, which can be well explained in the pics below

Weekend Getaways from Karad  

Best time to visit - January,February,October,November,December
India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
