Osho Teerth – Those who have seen this place before its transformation knows the significanceof people’sefforts in its creation. Earlier, thesite wasa barren land full of filth and damp, a black slurry nala used to flow from here that polluted it with the city’s drainage. This place was also a dumping yard of used oil for the nearby railway yard.
But now, it is a Japanese-style garden. A place full of vegetation has been restored with bamboo groves, mangroves, lotuses and roses, fountain sprays, and waterstreams. Now it is full of birds, swans, fish, and more.
All this was possible dueto the Ashram management that took over this place in 1989.
It is a perfect place to relax and be connected to nature even you live in the middle of the city. It has the essence of Japanese culture andis excellent for photoshoots as well.
