Morachi Chincholi (Chincholi Morachi), itself means a village of tamarind trees and town of dancing peacocks! It is situated near the Ahmednagar-Pune Highway, about 55 kms from Pune. This little village hosts more than 2500 peafowl, as on date! The story goes that a huge number of tamarind trees were planted during the Peshwa rule, which attracted the peafowl and they simply made it their home!
Your visit to Chincholi Morachi promises you everything that a rustic village-stay should! The authentic Maharashtrian fare will make your taste-buds dance in happiness, just like the peacocks you will be watching! Not only this, you can enjoy the simple joys of a village life, like kandil-lit homes, bird-watching, gilli-danda and other outdoor games with the village kids.
