The civil station, lying west and north of the railway and of Sitabaldi hill, has a much better natural site. In Bhonsla times it was the garden suburb where the Rajas built the original a Ambajheri and Telinkheri lakes and laid out their Telinkheri summer-house and the Maharajbag .these have been improved under British administration and in 1891 on streep isolated hill to the north of Sitabaldi the present Government House was built. Beyond this runs a longer ridge on which stands the Roman Catholic seminary and retreat, a tall and ugley but solid building. Under these hills to the south lies the flat plain of the civil station, laid out on the usual Indian lines with wide roads and compounds, cricket and football fields, polo-grounds, a race-course and a gold-course. The older part is a park of trees from which only the larger buildings show, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, the English Church, the Museum, the club House, and the new Victoria Institute. The new Secretariat Office building, not yet complete, will also be prominent prominent, but this lies beyond the old civil station on a tract of land recently taken up by Government of which several enlarged new court and offices have been or are being constructed for the superior offices of Government. In this direction lies the old polo-ground, and on a fine site near the Telinkheri lake the building for the Central Provinces Club is being erected to overlook the race-course and the new polo-ground. Much of this part of the plain is still bare of trees but several hundreds have been planted by Government and by the Municipality on the roads. When these and the plantations on Government House  hill and Seminary hill  are grown, the appearance of the station will be excellent. To the north of the hills lies Takli, a third portion of the station. It consists chiefly of high ground within easy reach of the railway and of the road to Kamptee. Several new bungalow have recently been out here by private individuals and houses are being constructed for the use of clerks. Plague epidemics have tended to drive the richer class of Indians out of their cramped city houses to suburban villas, and it seems probable that within a few years there will be much building extension from Takli northwards towards Kamptee, the present garrison town, which is also an important centre of trade.
