MTDC to Open Tourist Park in Nashik

Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) will build a tourist park near Gangapur dam in Nashik, with a Jantar Mantar-like observatory. The plan will be replicated near Panshet dam, close to Pune, and at Mula dam in Ahmednagar. Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a collection of architectural astronomical instruments, built by Rajput Sawai Jai Singh during the 1700s. MTDC’s project will be operational 24/7.

The park will feature a resort, a boat club, adventure and water sports, and an international convention centre. Amphibious aircraft will land and take-off from the dams where the project will come up, Neha Madaan reported in The Times of India.

An MTDC official said that the place near Gangapur dam will be the first where the tourist park will begin. “The amphibious aircraft will almost take an hour to reach Nashik from Mumbai, which will be an added attraction for tourists,” he said, adding that the project will be a modern observatory for amateur astronomy enthusiasts and not an exact replica of the Jantar Mantar.
