Jawahar (or Jawhar) is a panoramic hill station in the district of Thane situated at an elevation of 10 m. It is about 79 km away for the heart of the district and around 180 km away from Mumbai.
Formerly a princely state, Jawahar is enveloped in lush and dense green vegetation dotted with several stunning waterfalls. History has it that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj – the great Maratha Warrior – camped here on his journey to Surat.
Given its ideal climate and picturesque locale, Jawahar is referred to as the ‘Mahabaleshwar of Thane’. This hill station is very well known for its Warli Paintings – an extremely unique and renowned kind of art that originated in the Warli Tribe of Maharashtra.
The bewitching Dadara Kopra Falls and the Palusa Falls, the ancient and rustic Bhupatghad Fort and Jai Vilas Palace, and the panoramic view points like Hanuman Point and the Sunset Point are some of the many amazing attractions found here.
