History

During the 17th century, a new group of warrior people called the ‘Marathas’ came and took over Maharashtra from the rule of the Mughals. The origin of Marathas is still contentious, but what is known is that they stole the prominence from the great Mughals. The Britishers could establish their rule in India only after defeating the Marathas. Shivaji -was the first great ruler of Marathas and it was he who paved the way for future Maratha influence in this great country-India.
