Jalgaon in North West Maharashtra, bounded by Satpuda mountain ranges in the north and Ajanta mountain ranges in the south, is the headquarters of Jalgaon District.
Anubhuti, at Jain Divine Park, Jalgaon; is sprawled over 100 acres of land, planted with numerous trees and landscaped with expanses of flowering shrubs and greenery. The school buildings are nestled amongst trees and are surrounded by vast lawns. The composite stone masonry and Mangalore tile roofing blend with the rustic feel of the surrounding hills. The designs adopted and the materials used make the facilities climate–sensitive. The existing biodiversity will provide soothing thermal insulation against the tropical summers. The class rooms and all other facilities are naturally well lit and well ventilated. The school extensively uses solar and bio power for lighting, cooking and heating. All the solid and liquid waste is being re–cycled for conservation and sustainability.
Neighborhood & Infrastructure
Jain Hills and Jain Valley are situated across Anubhuti. Measuring about 2500 acres, they are home to the Hi–tech Agri Institute, Bio–tech and Tissue Culture Laboratories, Green Houses, Gomata Ashram, Fruit Processing factories, Onion Dehydration plants, Bio–fuel/Solar energy plants and many other agricultural experimental sites. The picturesque landscape and horticultural plantations are live symbols of successful wasteland reclamation, watershed planning, rainwater harvesting and the miracles of micro–irrigation technology. Farmers, students, scientists, researchers, government officials, opinion makers and industry leaders from India and abroad routinely visit these outstanding facilities. The helipads at Jain Hills have welcomed many such dignitaries. Anubhuti learners frequently get to freely interact with them.
Gandhi Research Foundation
Arguably the biggest memorial ever erected in memory of the Father of the Nation, GRF, the latest in the list of Jain Hills monuments, houses a library, a state–of–the–art multimedia museum and a digital archive. It was inaugurated on 25 March 2012 by Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil, President of India.
These live projects provide inspiring working models for the learners at Anubhuti. They can experience and experiment with them.
