Satara is a town in the state of Maharashtra. The city is situated in the western part of the state of Maharashtra. The entire district comes under the Deccan region. The main rivers flowing through the region are Krishna and Koyna.

The mention of this town has been found in the documents of 200 B.C. since Karad was a part of that town. There is also a reference of Viratnagari which was believed to have been inhabited by the Pandavas. Chandragupta II ruled this region from 451 A.D. to 750 A.D. and the Satavahanas ruled this region from 550 A.D. to 750 A.D.
