Mahabaleshwar

Mahabaleshwar is known as the Queen of all hill stations. This hill station is situated at an altitude of 1372 m in the heart of Sahyadri hills in Satara district. Its name is derived from a Lord Mahadev temple and three Sanskrit words, Maha (great), Bal (power), Ishwar (God). Some people also relate the name with mythological past as the Mahabaleshwar means mighty god.
