ECO FRIENDLY VILLAGE BECOMES THE MUSE OF A HIGH ENDED LUXURY SAFARI LODGE
This article is Chapter 4 in my series titled: BANDAVGARH: LUXURY, A VILLAGE and THE TROPIC OF CANCER. If you read them in sequence your pleasure and understanding will be enhanced.
Mardari ( i hope i spelt is right) is the tiniest but sweetest of villages located on the fringes of the Bandavgarh Tiger Reserve.
While it has many unique features two are closest to my heart. It’s an ECO FRIENDLY ORGANIC VILLAGE. As you see the pictures you will see the extensive use of natural materials in the construction of each houses. The result is the harmonious coexistence of man and nature.
Hope the zoom in helps.
Can anyone identify this tiger striped insect? Is it food for the bee eaters?
The second aspect is the absence of garbage . No plastic bottles and plastic bags .
Look at the lovely bullock cart , construction is unique to the region.
The village and its architecture have been brilliantly cloned at the luxurious Samode Safari Lodge. The pictures will help you see the similarities in the detailing.
There are some features however which can be found only at the VILLAGE MARDARI.
The name of the shop, Village name and timings of this shop are mentioned on the wall in blue on the left .
The last but not least is this cow with quite a character.
