A new six-part TV show will highlight the attractions of Maharashtra.
The Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) is currently in the process of making documentaries that will highlight the major tourist spots in the Indian state.
It is hoped by the authorities that this will encourage more people to book flights to Mumbai and help tourists find exactly what they are looking for once they arrive.
The six-episode television show, which will air next February, will feature heritage sites, historic spots and places of significant religious importance.
Particularly it will focus on the Mahalaxmi temple, the New Palace, Rankala lake and the world-famous chappals in Kolhapuri.
“Maharashtra has become highly urbanised in recent years. It is an advantage for attracting foreign tourists as they can find accommodation in a city and go for sight-seeing in the surrounding areas,” MTDC managing director Jagdish Patil told the Times of India.
Tourist may also find the episode on the meteor-created Lonar crater to be interesting.
