Abstract: In the last decade of the 19th century Maharaja Takhtasingji Observatory was built at Poona (1888–1912) under the supervision of K. D. Naegamvala, with the grant from Maharaja of Bhavnagar (from where the name Bhavnagar Telescope must have originated). The story of this telescope from its inception to the current status is traced. Indian Institute of Astrophysics Archives has been extensively used to resource information for this note.
