The Maharashtra government will celebrate the 350th coronation anniversary of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at Raigad on June 1 and 2, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said on Saturday.
He said the state government will also set up Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Centre at Agra.
The former Mughal empire capital assumes significance in Maratha history as Shivaji Maharaj gave Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb a slip from the city after he was imprisoned there by the latter.
"The 350th coronation ceremony will be celebrated by the state government at Raigad on June 1 and 2," Shinde said.
He said the coronation day is an inspiration for the state and cultural events will be organised in every district.
Shinde said the anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year by organising events across the state.
