Bassein is in the peaceful location, which is 77 km away from Mumbai. It is closely similar with the India's sultry beach state of Goa. But here, crowd is a bit less and those who wish to enjoy peaceful environment must visit Basssein.
This is quite of a historic place. One can see ruined forts that were
built by the Portuguese inside dense forests of brushwood and palm
grooves. Locals serve delicious Portuguese cuisines as well.
One can also see Buddhist relics at Nalasopara, which is 10 km from
Bassein. Vajreshwari Temple, Akloli hot springs, Sadguru Nityanand
Maharaj Samadhi Mandir at Ganeshpuri, Bhimeshwar Temple and other
ashrams are also worth to visit. There are quite a few churches of
Portuguese times as well in Bassein.
The nearest airport is in Mumbai, while the nearest railway station is
at Bassein Road. It is well connected by road as well.
Bassein Beach is one of the most beautiful and serene beaches of Maharashtra.
