The Butterfly Conservatory of Goa is a spectacular garden area in the Ponda district spread over 4000 square metres designed as a place to stroll and absorb in the serene beauty of nature. In the vast expanses of the garden, one can take a leisurely walk and observe over a hundred different species of butterflies from close quarters.
The park, also known as Mystic Woods, is owned and maintained by nature lovers and enthusiasts Dr Jyoti and Yashodhan Hablekar who built up the place from scratch. What was a barren hill a few years back has been converted into a large patch of green woods complete with a stream flowing through it, all thanks to the efforts of the Hablekar family. One of the main attractions of the Butterfly Conservatory of Goa is The Butterfly Pub, which is the spot for mud-puddling of the males of the species. This is where the male butterflies gather in the puddles and muddy areas to absorb nutrients like salts and amino acids before the mating ritual.
