Kimberly Rowe, Student Reporter Mumbai – A journey to Kolhapur is like travelling back in time! Well connected by air, rail and road, it offers an array of culture, spirituality and the arts. It is the perfect destination for tourists who love monuments and historical sites. For shopping lovers too, it is the ideal place as it is known for its textiles, cottons and especially the lovely Kolhapuri saris and chappals. It also has around 250 temples dotting its area for those who want to spend some spiritual time, breathing the fresh air and watching the breath-taking sceneries of vast landscapes, flora and fauna. In case you are wondering which would be one of the best places to nestle in Kolhapur, I would suggest Kent Club – The Hill Resort. It is a much favoured resort by tourists, students as well as families.
