The unblemished alleys of traditional Phaye village pass off unnoticed as you head towards Gargoti. Phaye retains a rustic charm not because of the architecture, but because of its closeness to nature! According to Census 2011, the population of Phaye is 1157. Phaye is an integration of several Bastis. Some of the Bastis are Begarwada, Dhangarwada, Joshiwadi and a Gaothan. Bastiyon Ka Paigam explored the Joshiwada Basti.
