Urban Haat At Belapur

Last week, there was an interesting event on photography at Urban Haat at Belapur. Postponing a visit to an event that you are passionate about is not a good idea. I went for this event on the last day only to see the people pack up. I was able to see just few photographs on display which were so beautiful that I realized what I had missed.

Well, visit to the Urban Haat is an event by itself. This is the venue where different exhibitions are conducted throughout the year. Surrounded by hustle and bustle of the city, this venue remains unaffected by pollution and noise and offers peace and solitude. Built on a higher altitude, the place is dotted with wooded area of bamboo trees, medicinal and herbal plants, and large rocks that have Warli paintings.

A smooth concrete path cuts through the slopes leading to different cluster of shops, There is a colorful water fountain in the heart of the park that adds to the beauty of this place.

There are many shops selling handicraft items and sometimes you are likely to find rare artifacts.

There is an Amphitheater standing proudly on a separate concrete platform.

As we walked up and down the concrete, sometimes on the slopes and sometimes on stairs, we chanced upon a puppet show. The man behind the stage was only too happy to bring his puppets to life on strings.

Although we did miss the photography event, the evening was well spent, munching on 'Sev Puri' at the food courts and walking lazily in the park.
