Where to stay in Pune

South-east of the main train station sit most of the accommodations on offer in Pune, with the choice largely revolving around standard hotels featuring small pools and restaurants. You can find some more luxurious options in the more spread-out areas to the north of the city center, and along the rivers that flow through town. Hostels and guesthouses provide budget-friendly options, with the bulk located near the university accommodation districts, and the side streets of the older parts of town.

  • Very well organized and beautifully maintained place, it is very difficult to believe that this museum has all the collections done by single man all his life. It has over 25,000 artifacts spread out in various categories like ornaments, war weapons, vessels etc. Unfortunately due to lack of space entire collection is not displayed to visitors. It seriously needs a much bigger space to do justice to Mr Kelkar hard work. It is open 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Ticket rate for children (
  • Very good historical musium. Takes about one hour to explore. The entry fees is ₹50/- Good to visit with family and kids.
  • A must visit place, great collection of Dr. Dinkar G Kelkar. Collection includes door frames, vessels, ornaments,musical instruments, paintings and carvings. Museum has one section allocated for Mastani Mahal which is well maintained.
  • Pune's oldest museum. Definitely worth visiting once. Scope for improvement.. but still good one.
  • A showcase of Indian heritage and artistry, and the result of one man's unrelenting pursuit of his passion. A must visit. Deserves much bigger space to display the full collection to do justice to the efforts of the great man, instead of the small fraction that is visible today.
