Saguna Baug Review- Neral, Karjat
There is an interesting story about establishment of Saguna Baug:
Mr. Shekhar, returned in 1976 from U.S.A. to persue the dream of his father Shri Harikaka Bhadsavle who was Gandhian freedom fighter. His fathers dream was to set an example for all in agricultural self-sustenance facility.
Today this Agro Tourism project has evolved the park to great extent, where hundreds of people visit each weekend. You can spend your weekends at the farm enjoying agricultural tours, the serene river, the culture and traditional village art forms.
Well lets look at more information about how to reach, stay in pond house, veg & non veg food, stay prices, packages and finally shopping.
