Mapro Garden, Panchgani Overview

Mapro Garden is a famous tourist attraction nestled in the beautiful hill station of Panchgani. Mapro is short for Mahabaleshwar Products, a brand name associated with delicious fruit-based products. With greenery all around, one will find a chocolate factory, a restaurant, a small nursery, children's play area and retail outlet selling Mapro products. The food served in the restaurant consists of healthy sandwiches and wood-fired pizzas made from organic ingredients. Ice-creams and cold-drinks of a wide variety are also available. Wheelchair access is provided throughout the campus. Visit Mapro Garden for a laid-back weekend with friends and family as you enjoy the beauty of this verdant destination.

Mapro Garden was established in the 1980s as an extension of the Mapro Foods Factory which enabled visitors to see the production of jams and syrups. On realising that the customers enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, they began serving ice-cream to the visitors. Later, other food items made from organic ingredients were put up on the menu, and today, it has turned into an iconic tourist destination. An auditorium here showcases the journey of Mapro products, and you can also buy your favourite jams and juices after tasting them from the retail outlet that is present here.
