  • A lot of effort has gone into creating this place. It is created to give tourists an experience of his traditional life in Konkan was. Has a lot of info.. Village and home models.. Social history.. Myths and traditions.. Guides are provided to explain all exhibits. The only negative was that the guides explained everything very fast and we didn't get time to explore. Highly recommended for all tourists.
  • One of the must visit place in Ganpatipule. The place depicts every minute details about old Konkan civilization. How they lived, what they do, their market place, their food and entertainment. The area also holds a number of medicinal plants. It's a thick jungle area.
