Early sunrays, omnipresent fog, soothing breeze, mid way on the mountain and greenery; I was relishing this experience. I felt the competition within myself, a contest with self to overcome the lethargy, a determination to reach the top and an urge for accomplishment. This place was welcoming my mood swings...this is the beauty of nature, you can be yourself and you can dip deep into your own thoughts.

The Shaniwar Wada Palace was commissioned in the year of 1729 when Peshwa Baji Rao I ruled Pune. The scale on which this construction was carried out reflected the Peshwas larger than like attitude. The place is filled with tanks, fruit trees, sprawling courtyards, halls where the ruler would hold an audience, office rooms and a large portion where the Peshwa would stay. This place has a total of five gates each with a distinct name - Ganesh, Dilli, Narayan, Khidhi, Mastani and Jambhul darwazas. The place is royal and majestic and one cannot afford to give it a miss.
