I am the place where you come if you want to see different species of birds, reptiles, mammals and wild animals like bison, tiger, barking deers, sambar, chital, wild boar, sloth bear and wild dog.

How I have been named Nagzira? There is lord Shiva and Nag temple (Snake) in the middle of my vicinity. There is also a village inside forest called ‘Nangthana’. I got my name from the temple and ‘zira’ (zara) in marathi means a perennial source of water, Nagzira.
