Jawhar is also known as the 'Mahabaleshwar of Thane District', and as the name suggests, it has the perfect ingredients of a hill station – the beautiful scenery with breath-taking views, the perfect weather to relax and the vibrant cultural heritage to ‘complete’ a holiday.

At an altitude of 518 meters and 180 km away from Mumbai, it translates into a perfect weekend getaway from the stressful fast paced life of the city. Jawhar is one of the very few tribal kingdoms in Maharashtra and is famous for its vibrant Warli paintings that are a characteristic landmark of this place.

There are tourist attractions in Jawhar, like the majestic Dadara Kopra Falls, Jai Vilas, the palace of the tribal kings, the Hanuman and Sunset Points and the enthralling Shirpamal, where Shivaji camped on his way to Surat.

A good place to stay on your visit to this destination is the Lodge by MTDC. The facilities here include a bar, restaurant, and cottages for the guests. Jawhar can be visited all through the year, pleasant climate and sunny days offer a nice atmosphere. The ideal time to visit Jawhar is from September to May.

Advice from travelers on what to do in Jawhar

MANMOHAN SAIGAL on 19 Jul 2010

As I go to Jawhar from Bandra,Mumbai frequently, since I have a small cottage there at Lake-View society just across the Jai Sagar Lake Jawhar about 2km from Jawhar town on Jawhar Silvassa Road; I find Palghar is the nearer & more convenient station to go to Jawhar. Just outside the Palghar station on the western side are MSRTC buses going to Jawhar, connecting almost every train from Mumbai. The distance is approximately 65 km from Palghar station. The best road route would be via Mumbai Ahmedabad Highway upto Manor, where just beyond Mastan Naka, you have to turn right from the Telephone Exchange Building (be careful or you might miss the road) for the road leading to Vikramgarh, Jawhar, Trimbakeshwar & Nasik, where Jawhar is approximately 46km from highway. The road from the highway to Jawhar is very good except for the first 3km. A very pleasant and scenic drive. Regards. Manmohan Saigal e-mail: genrub@gmail.com Mob.: 09869132932
