Nagothana
Nagothana is a census town in Raigad district in the Indian state of Maharashtra.
This village is prettily situated in a hollow surrounded by wooded hills, on the right bank of the Amba river or Nagothana creek about twenty-four miles from its mouth. Between Nagothana and the mouth of the Amba, the creek varies from an eighth to three-quarters of a mile in breadth. Above Dharamtar the bed is blocked with sandbanks, and, within four miles of Nagothana, it is crossed by reefs of rock which can be passed only at full tide. The creek is so filled up with sand that it is not navigable even for a country craft. Steamers cross daily from Mumbai to Dharamtar. From Dharamtar a steam launch plied to Nagothana till 1914-15 but it was discontinued the growth in automobiles. The vessels chiefly employed on the creek are phatemaris and macvas, with an occasional Bandar-boat used by travelers between Mumbai and Mahabaleshwar. Phatemaris are mostly used for carrying rice and salt; and macvas for rice and firewood. In the fair season, there is a considerable traffic at Nagothana, chiefly the export of rice and the import of salt and fishes. Here it’s usually hot and humid in the summers and it experiences very heavy rainfall with thunderstorm during the monsoon season amounting up to 90 inches rainfall per year. Besides it is an industrial area with companies of petrochemical, steel industries amounting employment opportunities to a great extent. It is situated about 100 km away from Mumbai and is on the Mumbai-Goa national highway 17.to the east of this town are the parts of Sahyadris which add to the beauty of the town.
