Fireflies: Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. To do this, the fireflies contain specialized cells in their abdomen that make light.
Rajmachi, located in the Lonavala region is accessible from both Karjat as well as Lonavala. The village of Udhewadi lies on the massive plateau that greets one on getting to Rajmachi. The twin forts of Srivardhan & Manoranjan grace the backdrop of the village.
A little distance down from the village lies a serene and beautiful lake called Uday Sagar Talav. Behind the lake lies an ancient Monolith, a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
