 History

Nestled in the breathtaking Sahyadri hill ranges, Matheran is a beautiful city on the outskirts of Mumbai. The history of Matheran takes us back into the ebb of the British rule. The unrivalled beauty of this small quaint hall station lured the British to come and have a stay here. You can take an indolent stroll into the dense woods or can savor the natural splendor of this place at your leisure.

Matheran’s history states clearly that once upon a time it was an exclusive retreat for the British during the scorching days of summers. It was discovered by a British in the year 1850. You will come across a lot of grand mansions that were built by the British, Parsis and Bohras during the yesteryears. The British high officials used to flock in, to spend time when there was unbearable sweltering heat in the plains. Once you visit this place, you will feel as if the history of Matheran city coming to life.

Today the British discovery happens to be the only hill station in Asia where pollution has no place. It has also bagged the title of Eco Sensitive Zone. No vehicle is allowed to invade the privacy and serenity of the hill station.

Raised like a dream in the Sahyadri ranges - a new path in the forest clears up in Matheran, the last British hill station. Chug up in a toy train or walk, trot, dandi in palanquins past the gigantic mansions built by the British, the Parsis, and the Bohras - for Matheran is Asia's only pedestrian hill resort. Lounge like never before in a verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you would have known. Stroll down to Charlotte Lake. Relish the local cuisines. Find space for more space in your mind. 19th century peace now returns for Mumbai's residents again as they will lose themselves to find themselves anew.
