Mahabaleshwar is a city and a municipal council in Satara district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is a hill station located in the Western Ghats range. With one of the few evergreen forests of the world, it served as the summer capital of Bombay province during the British Raj. It is a popular holiday resort and an important pilgrimage site for Hindus. It is the site of Mahabaleshwar Temple. Many tourists visit nearby Panchgani. After the construction of a new highway, it is only a five-hour drive from Mumbai. Mahabaleshwar is also known for the honey and strawberries produced here. One can visit strawberry farms to enjoy the real flavour of the fruit. It is said that the climate of Mahabaleshwar is ideal for strawberries and mulberries. One can also get a taste of "Strawberries with Cream"

Mahabaleshwar is related to a mythological story of Ravan taking Atmalinga from Lord Shiva as a gift and on way back to Lanka, Maharshi Narada duped him for evening prayers, then ravana handed over Atmalinga to Lord Ganesha in the guise of a brahmin boy at Mahabaleshwar. Before Ravan returned from prayers, Ganesh installed Atmalinga on ground. Inspite of every effort of Ravana to lift shivalinga he failed, that's why the name is Mahabaleshwara. It has another name Gokarnam.
