A Beautiful Evening Spot -Karwale Dam in Saphala

Detour January 24, 2013



We came across this very soothing evening spot last weekend, the Karwale dam. This one is located in Saphala, a train station that falls in between Virar-Palghar route.  Karwale dam is approximately  6 years old, you can say a moderately recent construction. Since then, it has been a great water source to the nearby villages. Other than that as you see the pictures, it is a quaint evening spot for residents there. We imagined that during monsoon this dam and the surroundings must look stunningly green and therefore a great idea to plan a picnic during the season.





You can board passenger trains or Virar-Dahanu local trains that halt at Saphala Railway station. Roughly, the dam  is  3-4 kilometers  from eastern section of the village, an east-west division made by the railway line there. Hire a rikshaw, dumdum or catch a bus to get to the Karwale Stop on the route to a small village, Pargaon.





By road,  Karwale dam is on Saphale road, a deviation from Mumbai -Ahmedabad expressway on National Highway8 .

    Shevala is an edible, exotic vegetable, botanically related to the family of Suran Flower. You can compare the similarity with the help of pictures (especially the inflorescence structure). Both, Suran flower and Shevala taste similar after cooking and have a very limited season. The difference is Shevala is not a plant grown on farms. You […]

We were correctly informed then about this sandwich corner which the owners, yes the uncle and aunty, who tell us […]
