Satara (Marathi सातारा) is a city located in the Satara District of Maharashtra state of India. The town is 2320 ft. above sea-level, near the confluence of the Krishna and its tributary river Venna. The city was the capital of the Maratha empire ruled by the Bhonsle Chhatrapatis, hence one of the historical cities of Maharashtra. This city is the capital of Satara Tehsil, as well as Satara District.
The name of the city is derived from the seven hills surrounding the city. Saat (सात) meaning seven in Marathi and Tara (तारा) meaning hill, thus forming the word 'Satara'. Historians agree that the name of the city has its origins in the seven hills overlooking the city. The seven hills are Ajinkyatara, Sajjangad, Yawateshwar, Jarandeshwar, Nakdicha Dongar, Kitlicha Dongar, and Pedhyacha Bhairoba.
The direct descendents of Raja Shivaji continue to live in Satara. The current king of Satara, Udayanraje Bhonsle is the 13th descendent of Shivaji Maharaj.
