Shaniwar Wada, Pune

(1.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Visit Shaniwar Wada, an 18th-century fort which, at its peak, housed over a thousand people. The fort, built in 1732, once stood at seven stories high, and was the capital building of the Peshwa empire. An unexplained fire tore through the fort in 1828, burning for seven days. Only the fortification walls, gateways, and the nine bastions that surrounded the palace remain today. Learn about the fort's rich and interesting history, and admire the remains of what was once considered the seat of the Peshwa rulers. Plan to visit Shaniwar Wada during your Pune vacation using our convenient Pune family vacation planner.
