Maharashtra : Pilgrimage
 
Maharashtra has a long tradition of tolerance and symbiotic interaction with different religious faiths.

To the south lies the basin of Godavari and the territory from Nasik to Nanded which is regarded as sacred. A man-jority of saints and poets were born here. Trimbakeshwar, the place from where the Godavari originates has a sanctity of its own. Nanded is a pilgrim point for the Sikhs as it has a samadhi of Guru Gobind Singh.

Besides Haji Ali; Haji Matang; churches of Bassein and Bombay, synagogues of Pen and Alibag; Jain and Buddhist temples, Maharashtra also has five of the twelve jyotirlingas, located at Ghrisneshwar near Ellora, Aundh Nagnath in Parbhani, Parli Vaijnath in Beed, Trimbakeshwar in Nasik and Bhimashankara in Pune.

Maharashtra imbibed the cultural and religious influences of the northern Aryans and southern Dravidians. Thus both Vaishnavism and Shivism flourised in the region.

Shaivism extended its ambit to the worship of Ganesh, son of Shiva. In fact the elephant-headed god is one of the most popular deities worshipped by the people here.
