Our recollections, and those of others, are unique and vital to our Home Town's story. As these memories undergo the rigors of examination, selection, evaluation, and recording, they become the foundation upon which additional resources will be built.
Our Aim is to make Khanapur.com the one-stop destination for all information pertaining to the town. Our bigger aim includes creation of the underlying passion for one's home town and the way it shapes the person in you.
