Awesome place to visit

I had been to Jalna by road in the month of March 2016. Jalna is an important stop-over in the tourism circuit of Maharashtra. The must-visit places in and around Jalna include Moti Baag, Moti Talaab and Jalna Fort. Incidentally, Jalna district is the birth-place of Samarth Ramadas Swami. The Moti Baag is one of the main attractions of Jalna City. It has a beautiful garden fully covered with grass and greenery and it also boasts of a mini train set to entice young children to this majestic abode of greenery and beauty. Moti Talaab is a big tank located to the west of Jalna town. This majestic structure has a water system which supplies water through the medium of reservoirs through pipes. This system, however is no longer in existence in Jalna town. The Jalna Fort is located to the east of the town and known as Mastgad today. The citadel today houses the municipal offices which is beautifully decorated with galleries and chambers. The citadel dates back to the persian era with the date of construction being described on it.
