A beautiful Shiva temple in Manavali village near Wai, Maharashtra, India.  This is a popular filming location due to its picturesque location and close proximity to Mumbai (Bombay).  Numerous Bollywood films such as Swades and Gangajal have been filmed here.  In Gangajal, this location was showed to be in the lawless Indian state of Bihar.

Koleshwar plateau as seen from atop Mt. Kamalgad near Wai, Maharashtra, India. Developers are lobbying to make a “New Mahabaleshwar” hill-station on Koleshwar.  Can you believe it?  I trekked through the dense forest of Koleshwar and it will indeed be sad to see all the trees cut down to make another “hill-station” where the city slickers can go for a “weekend getaway”.  Then again, if I don’t intend to do anything about this, then I have no right to complain.  Right?

An elderly local (81 years old) by the name of Mr. Gogawale, who was as fit as an 18 year old, told us that Drona from the epic Mahabharata had spent some time on this plateau.
