Ujjain has been the shelter for a number of Peacocks, Birds, Butterflies, and Snakes. It also provides a very soothing human interaction with nature. Currently due to disturbance in biodiversity because of increased population and development, it has become a challenging task to both conserve the ambiance and ensure safety of the species.
In view of the above situation, Ujjain Smart City and Ujjain District Forest Authority in a coordinated way proposes to implement Mayur Van (Peacock Park). The project focusing towards urban forestry, bio-diversity and ecological conservation, environmental education coupled with adventure and recreation for the visitors promotes Eco-Tourism.
The Project is proposed on 6.7 Ha. land which is situated on Kothi Road near Collectorate Bhawan, Ujjain, in which 1.3 Ha. will be used as recreational and adventurous part for visitors and rest will be the dense forest.
The concept for the project is to develop few spaces for the visitors for recreation and environmental education without disturbing the living species in the forest. Therefore, all the physical development is done through locally available material and dense landscape with diffused night lighting. It will be a perfect example of vernacular architecture.
