Geographic Profile of Maharashtra
            

       Maharashtra is the second most populous state after Uttar Pradesh and third largest state by area in India.

        Maharashtra encompasses an area of 308,000 km² (119,000 mi²). It is bordered by the states of Madhya Pradesh to the north, Chhattisgarh to the east, Andhra Pradesh to the south-east, Karnataka to the south, and Goa to the south-west. The state of Gujarat lies to the north-west, with the Union territory of Dadra andNagar Haveli sandwiched in between. The Arabian Sea makes up Maharashtra's west coast.

        The Western Ghats better known as Sahyadri, are a hilly range running parallel to the coast, at an average elevation of 1,200 metres (4,000 ft). Kalsubai, a peak in the Sahyadris, near Nashik City is the highest elevated point in Maharashtra. To the west of these hills lie the Konkan coastal plains, 50–80 kilometres in width. To the east of the Ghats lies the flat Deccan Plateau. The Western Ghats form one of the three watersheds of India, from which many South Indian rivers originate, notable among them being Godavari River, and Krishna, which flow eastward into the Bay of Bengal, forming one of the greatest river basins in India.

        Mumbai, the capital city of the state, is India's largest city and the financial capital of the nation. Nagpur is the second capital of the state.
