HolidayIQ traveller A S shares, "This is our local version of the legendary hanging gardens of Babylon. It is a very well maintained garden and is a home of some of the very exquisite flower shows. My favourite part of the garden is the shoe house, structure in the shape of shoe. There is a staircase using which you can also walk up to the balcony. It is one of the very innovate structures which was build in an era when none of architects were even thinking in this direction. You have to give credit to the imagination of that time."

8. Lonavala Is Just 3 Hours Away!

For people staying closeby like Mumbai or Pune, it's a refreshing and soothing holiday spot. The weather was good - pleasant in the morning, rains in the evening. Perfectly romantic.”
