Shaniwar Wada, Pune

38

The Shaniwar Wada is a historically significant place as it served as the seat of the Peshwa Dynasty’s rule in Pune. It was built in 1730, close to 300 years back by King Baji Rao. A fire in 1827, however, ravaged and destroyed the Palace, which currently lies in ruins.

The Light and Sound show is a must watch event while you’re there exploring the Palace. The Palace serves as a testimony to the Maratha Culture, with the place showing a neat blend of the ongoing Maratha style of architecture and the Mughal style that had crept in then.
