Aamby Valley City is a picturesque township developed as a planned city by the Sahara India Pariwar in Pune district in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is about 23 km from Lonavala and 87 km from the city of Pune. During a visit to Aamby Valley in Maharashtra, I was surprised to know of the existence of a Naga village called “Chiong Tak” or "The Naga Village" within the township.


 Here are some photos of Aamby Valley City:

Here are some photos of the Naga Village at Aamby Valley, Pune, Maharashtra from a previous visit. Being from Nagaland, it was exciting to think of a Naga architecture being showcased in a place far away from Nagaland. I was told that the name of the village, “Chiong Tak”, is from Ao dialect and it means “A fine dining place“. Apparently, as per information from one of the staff there, the structures were built by Naga workers from Nagaland.
