Pune: The first butterfly garden in the city, and only the second one in India, is set to be inaugurated at Aranyeshwar, Sahakarnagar, this week.
Nearly half-a-hectare garden, developed through the initiative of corporator Aba Bagul, will breed around 10,000 species of butterflies. A jogging track has also been developed as an extension to the garden. The track, with trees on both sides, runs along the nullah in Aranyeshwar.
Special species of trees and plants are planted in the garden to attract butterflies.
Speaking to TOI, Bagul said the garden has been developed as butterflies were becoming extinct from cities due to large-scale construction and reduced green cover.

"There are plans to include the garden in the `Pune Darshan' bus service being run for tourists. Information boards about various species of butterflies and their life cycle have been put up in the garden, which will be helpful to children."
The first butterfly garden in the country is in Bangalore.
