Click here to read an article in Times of India on Konkan

Konkan is the coastal region of Maharashtra state lining the Arabian sea. It extends from north to south and is made up of the districts of Thane, Raigad, Ratnagiri & Sindhudurg. The Konkan region is separated from the rest of the state by the Sahyadri mountain range also known as the western ghats. This region has remained in isolation (thankfully) for a long time for lack of proper means of transport. About ten years ago (around early 90s), this region opened up with the advent of the 'Konkan railway' - the rail route that connects Mumbai (Bombay) with the entire western coast of India. 'Konkan railway' in itself is an unparalleled achievement of engineering excellence for India involving construction of several bridges and tunnels through its entire run across the state.
 
The region boasts of a unique culture that is unlike any other region in the country. People are quite friendly and hospitable. There are several places of geographical, cultural and architectural interest in the Konkan region. Most places offer long stretches of unexplored beaches, which have a serene character without much commercialization.
