Varanasi is mini India. Maharashtrians culture took birth in Varanasi after the advent of Marathas. They established educational institutions and several voluntary organizations and commenced to celebrate Ganesh Mahotsava.
In course of time, many organizations started eleven day long celebrations and cultural programmes.
People from different states reside here and they live with their own traditions and values and still maintain their culture.
If you cannot manage to go to Mumbai, you may participate with local Maharashtrian community.
