Taljai Tekdi, SahakarNagar, Pune

A Jungle in a concrete Jungle is the first thing that comes to mind when you visit the Taljai Tekdi at SahakarNagar in Pune. There are more than 5 total trails starting with 3 and then branching off into more. Do visit this place around sunrise or sunset. The biodiversity is worth noticing. any almost any point in time there is a minimum one variety of tree in bloom. the small flowering shrubs are almost all around the year. There are some points where water is available (typically for watering the plants). You can also see the Huge sign of "Singhad Institues" from the park. If you are staying in pune, a visit here is a must. Near the entrance are a line of Bhel and refreshment stalls and a Baba Ramdev Sports center set up during the recent commonwealth games at pune. There is a Taljai mata temple (the taljai tekdi is named after the taljai mata mandir) right near the entrance. on the way up to the Taljai Tekdi is the taljai ground where you often see young men engaged in a game of cricket. During the monsoon you can see beautiful butterflies in a sharp contrast to the green background. Inside the forest you can see some mud and thached huts. Kids enjoy the nature at the Taljai tekdi in pune.
On the way back one can visit the amazing Aba Bagul Park to see the transformation of a toad to a beautiful princess and visit the Laxmi mata temple adjacent to the park.
